We are in the process of planing our trip for June of 2013. We will fly into London, spend 3-4 days there then take the train to Edinburgh. We will plan on 6 days in Scotland.
We know for certain that we plan to spend some time in Edinburgh and St. Andrews. Then we plan to rent a car and head to Oban. We're thinking that we could then possibly visit Mull, Iona, Glen Coe and Perth.
We don't want to move hotel frequently, so we are planning to split our time between a hotel in Edinburgh and one in Oban.
I have read that Skye is "not to miss", but I just fear that we would be spending a lot of hours driving and moving hotels if we tried to get to Skye, am I wrong? Will we get a good taste/view of Scotland by targeting the areas that I mention above? Are we crazy to target Mull and Iona vs. Skye?
Thank you for your comments and suggestions!
