10-13 days in Scotland, help with planning.


We are planning to visit Scotland in July. We are thinking of splitting our time between 3 areas, staying several days in each and day tripping from these bases. We are thinking of Edinburgh, Inverness and Mull/ Oban area. We plan to rent a car. We are planning to attend the Scottish Open one of our days. What would you suggest for splitting up our days? Are these areas good bases? Did I give you enough information to answer this question?

A lot depends on what you want to do and see during your visit, but in principle I think those three centres could work well. A car is more of a nuisance than an asset in Edinburgh, so it might be an idea to spend,say, three days there and then pick up you hire car as you leave. Then three days in Inverness and maybe four in Oban and/or Mull would work well.
