Scottish here. Would suggest you drop a day in Inverness and try to overnight in Skye. Take a longer drive and stop somewhere along the way then you get a sunset/sunrise in Skye too

Good point! He can handle about 6hrs with a few breaks easily.

Inverness is beautiful. When driving, remember it will be on the other side of the road, just remember where your body should be in relation to the middle, it makes turns easier.

Thanks! Will keep that in mind

Make reservations soon. Skye is lovely but more travelers than space to accommodate them. And don’t wait until 8pm for dinner with your kid unless you wanna wait a long time for dinner

Great input! Thank you! Any particular location in Skye you recommend? From what I understood, there are a few islands there.

Would highly recommend driving from Edinburgh to Glasgow and then up the west highland way to skye. The scenery is unbelievable, the hills and the glens. Check it out on google. Then you can dive over to Inverness and back down to Edinburgh.

I did the Glasgow to Skye drive with a one-night stop at Ft. William, though could have driven it nonstop. Super beautiful drive! Took the ferry to Skye and spent 4-5 days on the island. IMO Skye should warrant more time than a day trip. Left Skye via the bridge on the north end and did the drive back to Glasgow in a day (with a short stop at Sterling). Returned rental car and took the train to Edinburgh — only had two nights there, wish it had been longer. This was at the end of a 6-week Euro trip though so can’t complain. :-)

Thanks much for your responses. Solidified my trip a little bit more based on inputs from you all. Edinburgh- 2 days. Drive from Edinburgh-> Ft William (spend the night ) -> Portree (spend 2 nights) -> Glencoe -> Glasgow Your thoughts are much appreciated.

Assuming you are taking the southern ferry route off of Skye.

(Cont) stay in Inverness for 2 days that includes a day trip to Isle of Skye. Please let me know if this sounds feasible. Any other suggestions/recommendations are welcome! Thank you

She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks?

Fellow Fishes - How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way. I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
