My husband and I will be in the Lake District for an event, and are planning a few days of travel after. Here is what I was thinking.
Mon - leave Glasgow and drive past Loch Lomand and Balmoral (I know it's not open) on our way to Alford. (My grandmother was born and raised there and it's the reason we are going to Scotland)
Tuesday - drive down to Edinburgh possible via St. Andrews.
Wednesday - see Edinburgh
Thursday - drive to Manchester (where we fly home from) via the east coast.
Friday - fly home
I realize this is a lot of driving, but we don't mind that. I also read that one of the best ways to see the country is just to drive it...so that's the plan!
Any advice (routes, what we might see on the way) would be appreciated! Thanks.
