    Blimey - where to start!!

    West Coast is stunning, going into Fort William area and further up. Highlands are just as stunning. Depends what you want to do when you're there? - walking etc.

    Having moved from Scotland over 25 years, I've forgotten half of the places to recommend. I'm sure the local guys will be along to help shortly.

    Yep, the west coast is stunning, up to loch ness to look for the monster, across to Skye for a look, stunning out that way ...

    so far just looking at not to deep into the wilderness as have a 8wk old baby and only 2 days to do it in, any area's i need to stay clear off etc.
    would like some history but also some shopping too so a city would also be ideal, ie :- glasgow, aberdeen, and they have to have a premier travel inn...half decent comfort and familiarity for the boss and little unn..

    thanks for any help

    I would still do Loch Ness, it isn`t in the wilderness, well no more than the rest of the place *lol* , you could then stay in Inverness, great for shopping. The west coast is stunning ....

    If you want site seeing, scenery and shopping why not consider Glasgow and Loch Lomond, I am sure there is a travel inn/lodge not too far from the bottom of the Loch near Dumbarton, giving you easy access to the Loch and the new visitors centre there, and only half an hourish drive into Glasgow.

    Also as you are driving from Nottingham with a new born, not too far a journey either, the highlands are a bloomin longway. My girlfirends mother lives in Golspie and that is a heck of a journey

    Cheers

    You might prefer some of the off-the-beaten track roads

    Loch Lomond is nice, but continue up to Faslane then over to Douglas
    This road is a great challenge!
    Eventually you rejoin the main road to Oban A82
    Oban, Fort William, then on to Inverness

    From Inverness take the A9 down to Carrbridge, then follow signs to Braemar A93
    Once over the Cairngorms, head to Aberdeen

    Follow the coast road down to Dundee
    You can then either continue down through Fife (Tay Bridge Toll southbound) and over the Forth Road Bridge (no Toll southbound)

    Swap routes for Edinburgh / Glasgow accordingly, whether you come up the A1 or M74

    As for Travel Inn, I assume you get a Whitbread discount, so you will need to book at least a week in advance
