It's our first journey to Scotland, and we'll be based in an apartment in Glasgow for a week in mid-September. We're planning a day trip to Edinburgh by train, but we'd also like to get out of the city and enjoy some of the spectacular scenery.
We'll be traveling by train, and would like to depart on a weekday morning and return the next evening. Can anyone suggest an overnight destination? We're interested in great scenery, a nice place to get out and walk a bit, a castle or a nice museum, ending with a good dinner and a nice B&B.
We originally thought we'd take the train from Glasgow to Ft William to Mallaig, but while the scenery looks stunning we've been told neither town has much to offer as an overnight destination.
Your opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
