I posted on the other thread but thought I might get more responses here. I want to book the hotels (which will be different for every night we are there) and would love to get some advice & suggestions. Particularly about time allotment- too much or too little at each place? It's important since I need to get that right in order to book the hotels. TIA!
Here it is:
Sunday, 8/24- Arrive in Inverness around 1pm. Drive to Golspie. Stay the night.
Monday, 8/25- Morning: Dunrobin Castle. Afternoon: Drive to Durness through A836, stop by Tongue. Spend the night in Durness.
Wednesday, 8/27- Ullapool to Torridon. Stops @ Falls of Measach and Gairloch. Spend the night in Torridon.
Thursday, 8/28- Torridon to Plockton. Explore Glen Torridon and stop by Applecross. Spend the night in Plockton.
Friday, 8/29- Plockton to Isle of Skye. Detour to Eilean Donan castle. Spend the night in Skye.
Saturday, 8/30- Explore Isle of Skye- Dunvegan, Quiraing, Cuillin Hills, Talisker Distillery. Spend the night in Skye.
Monday, 9/1- Flight back to NYC early morning.
What do you guys think? Am I trying to squeeze in too much? Dramatic beautiful scenery is top on our list. We are in our late 20s/early 30s living in Manhattan and we CRAVE nature. It's the main reason why we travel. Plus my fiance loves scenic drives, especially coastal, so I've included as much as I can (Tongue, Achiltibuie, Applecross, Arisaig & Morar, and Ardnamurchan). I know he will be stopping along the way for pictures....An ideal vacation has lots of nature/landscapes in remote locations, opportunity for photography, wildlife... things we don't really get in the city. Good food doesn't hurt either, but we are not really interested in museums.
Thanks again for everyone's input!
