Advise for 7 days


My Gf and myself ( late 20’s) are planning for a vacation in scotlans for 7 days. We are palnning to come 4th Oct i.e friday to edinburgh and stay in Premier Inn hotel Edinburgh park - The Gyle from 4th till 8th i.e Monday. We paln to see most of attractions in Edinburgh in these days and what are written in THINGS TO DO section of edinburgh.

Then we plan to hire a car and travel Monday morning to St andrews and spend half day there ( ?? dont know how much time it will atke to travel to St andrews from edinburgh).

Then in the evening go to Inverness and stay overnight there. Also plan to go to Loch Ness while we are there. Can some one advise a good place to stay there and what things we can can do and see while we are there. Also how many days we should stay there.

Then we plan to go to Skye and see things there ( ?? again dont know what to do there and if a stay there would eb any good)

Then we plan to come along west coast to Mull/Oban ( Which is better and what to do there)

Then come back to Glasgow and stay overnight and do the Hip-hop bus tour in the morning of Thursday i.e 10th october as we plan to fly to Birmigham that evening?

Can anybody advise if this is a good plan and how to balance days and which place is better for over night stay or in terms of travelling ( if long distance travelling is involved).

We have 7 days to roam around. If anybody has better suggestions that is much appreciated as I have just been through few forums and think this is a good plan. We are flexible to going around places as long as we can enjoy

It You are on a budget have a look at the Travel Lodge just of Princes Street which is within walking distance of just about everything in the central area and 'Old' & New' towns and handy for the main train/bus station.
