The Ultimate Scottish Four Day Road Trip


Chris and I took our first non-city European escape to the Loftoten Islands, Norway back in March this year and to be honest in the lead up to the trip I was worried that I wouldn’t cope with all the space and the lack of typical travel to-dos – museums, restaurants and coffee shops, manicured gardens, iconic buildings – you know, all the human made stuff.

BUT I LOVED IT! The peace, the quiet and the wildness of nature. So now I just have to mix up my city trips with wonderfully beautiful nature getaways and hence here we are in Scotland!

There is so much beauty to see in Scotland but we only had 5 days so we had to settle on two bases for the trip Glencoe and then Isle of Skye. We flew in and out of Glasgow and hired a car to explore. We weren’t as purest on this trip as Norway – there were some lovely pubs and cafes we just had to curl up in at different points throughout the trip! Also, Autumn is next level in Scotland. The colours were stunning!

Here’s a little overview of our road trip in the Scottish Highlands and Isle of Skye.
