We have my in-laws coming out from South Africa at the end of September and would like to take them somewhere they've never been and that we've never been either. We have 8 days. Mother-in-law is fit and able and a keen walker, father in law fairly limited mobility due to double knee replacements and obesity.
So looking at heading somewhere where we can base ourselves for 2/3 days before heading on and where the wife and I can do the odd day trip on the bikes but where we have walking/scenery and some local interest stuff for the in-laws. Probably look at two or three "bases" over the 8 days and exploring the local area before heading on. Would not mind including trips to Oban/ Western side of Scotland too as I have not seen much of that part of the world.
So: is that too late in the year for the Hebrides? Suggestions as to where to stay and what to see very welcome, both on the islands and mainlands. Also suggestions as to how long we should give to each spot?
