Scotland is a gorgeous country and we saw more of it in 12 days than I thought possible! Our travel specialists took the time to listen our wishes and concerns and with those in mind, crafted an itinerary that allowed us to see Edinburgh, the lowlands, the highlands, Isle of Skye, St Andrews--a little bit of everything Scotland had to offer without us feeling rushed. Our hotel choices were spot-on. Each hotel had a unique style with lovely rooms, attentive staff and, of course, full Scottish breakfasts! We appreciated that our contact checked in via email while we were traveling, but I am happy to say that because of all her help in the planning, there was no need for her assistance during the trip.
So hard to choose. We loved the Isle of Skye. There really are no words to describe the beauty there! We toured the Isle with a small van tour and I would highly recommend others do so. It provided us the opportunity to see all the Island with a very informative guide with plenty of time to scramble about the gorgeous sites on Skye.
Another highlight of our vacation was our stay in Inverness. We stayed at the Culloden House which was probably our favorite hotel of the trip--how could it not be when a piper walks around the property in the evening while the guests sit in the lounge enjoying pre-dinner drinks! When our travel specialist realized that this stay would coincide with our daughter's birthday , she arranged that a cake would be served with our dinner. It was a delicious and thoughtful touch. What also made Inverness a favorite was the private tour that we had with our guide. Aside from the freedom from driving for the day, Jim was outstanding and truly added value to our trip!! He was charming and informative and ready to take us to wherever we wanted to go which turned out to be Culloden Battlefield and a whiskey distillery. As if that wasn't enough, he presented our daughter with a lovely gift to celebrate her birthday (our agent having given him a 'heads up'). All in all, a perfect day.
Well, we drove our car into a ditch on the first day so not that! But really, I'm not sure what we would have done differently. Maybe spent more time--especially in Edinburgh. There is just so much to see.
