As of 1/6…page will be updated as specifics become more clear. NOTE: Important thing for right now is the overall timing. We may blow up these details and suggest a different itinerary.
Broadly, we’re thinking ~a full week’s worth of time in Scotland. We’d start with a couple days in Edinburgh to see the city and then venture north to the Highlands ~5 days (likely somewhere around Inverness).
General window: Thu, 11/7 - Fri, 11/15
Hopefully we’ll have a more specific sense of timing and activities here soon, but you can generally imagine us being there much of that week (the week of 11/10) and the weekend prior.
To Be Decided
Lots of things! Like…
Full count of folks who are coming.
Lodging situations (in Edinburgh and the Highlands).
Where exactly we’ll stay in the Highlands. Could be north or a bit south of Inverness.
When folks will arrive & depart.
Transportation options (e.g., getting to Inverness, renting a car, etc.).
Edinburgh for 2 Days
~Fri, 11/8 - Sun, 11/10
Couple of days to walk around and see the city
Likely individually booked accommodations, but we’ll see about pinpointing a central hotel
We’d then hop a train and head north (to Inverness)
Travel to Inverness/Highlands
(There looks to be a few options to travel north, but the train could be fun. Train is ~1hr more than driving.)
Highlands for 5 Days
~Sun, 11/10 - Thu, 11/14 (or Fri)
Hunker down in a group house (hopefully) for the week somewhere around Inverness.
Visit distilleries! (many look to be ~60mins from Inverness…so proximity will depend on where we end up staying.
