I recently made the bold decision to take a holiday in Scotland all the way from Australia. I also decided that I would rent a care and drive myself around now that I am over the age of 25 and no longer have to pay extra to drive a rental care.
I booked my rental care online and collected it at the Glasgow airport and had researched and booked an itinerary from Australian.
I had visions of driving through romantic landscapes and down winding lanes and was not disappointed my itinerary for my driving holiday was as follows
Day one : Glasgow
Day two:Doune Castle (Film set for Monty Python and more recently Outlander series)
St Andrews (The home of golf)
Nights accommodation in Braemar in the Cairngorms National Park
Day three: Duff town (where the Glenfiddich distillery is)
The Clava Cairns
Culloden battle fields
Night accommodation in Inverness.
The Isle of Skye
The Highland Games Portree
nights accommodation in Broadford
Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye
Eilen Doune Castle
A weeks accommodation in Argyle on the Lunga Estate in a cabin (called Scott’s Bothy)
Day trip to Invarary and Invarary Castle
Day trip to Isle of mull, Staffa island and the Fingle Caves.
Isle of Iona and The Iona Abby.
Lunga estate to Glasgow.
I was so surprised about how easy it was to drive around Scotland. All the rode signs made sense and even thought I was a little worried that I would be on endless highways with not much to look at there where endless lane ways we had to drive down to get to where we where going. I picked up a 12 pound sim card in Glasgow that gave me two gig of data and used my phone as a GPS. There was plenty of road signs to get you to all the big sights especially when we where getting close. It was amazing driving around through all the mountains and highland roads. I only wish I had filmed more of it to share with you all.
Keep and eye on my blog where I’ll take you all to each stop we made on out trip and share some of the amazing views and sights we got to see.
