I was up at Edinburgh Castle a few weeks ago, I enjoyed it, far more interesting than I remembered it from school visits.
Also in Edinburgh there is Craigmillar Castle which was home to Mary, Queen of Scots at one point. If you are walking up to it there is a cycle path/walkway accessed from Craigmillar Castle Avenue, its much safer than walking up the twisty turny road which has no sidewalk. The path crosses the road at one point and comes out at The Edinburgh Royal Infirmary ( near the bike rack at back of medical school )

If you're thinking about visiting a lot of palaces/castles maybe think about an Historic Scotland pass to save on money
http://www.visitscotland.com/shop/tickets-passes/historic-pass/

To see the highlights of Edinburgh there are open topped tour buses which you can hop on and off.

Don't forget Edinburgh has a whacking great hill in the middle, the remains of an extinct volcano, Arthurs Seat. Great views from the top ( if it's not raining ) situated in Queens Park next to Palace of Holyrood, there's also 3 lochs in the park

I loved Orkney, maybe a bit remote for a quick visit but it has fantastic ancient sites like Skara Brae, the Ring of Brodgar, Maeshowe
There are flights from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Kirkwall

We spent around 10 days in the summer touring up the west coast, along the top and down the East. The scenery was fantastic.
There's now a free bridge over to Skye from Kyle of Lochalsh.
Some villages in the Highlands and Islands stick to the old ways ie shops and petrol stations close on a Sunday so be prepared for that.
Durness and nearby Balnakeil are remote, windy but wonderful empty beaches. Wonderful chocolate for sale in Cocoa Mountain in Balnakeil.
The visitors centre in Durness has a beautiful wall hanging showing the "riots" - basically the women of the village burned the eviction notices, you can walk round the abandoned area where families once lived and worked until the landlords reckoned sheep were more profitable and less bother

To add my bit, try going to Fort William, have a vintage steam train ride £32 standard return, see this site.
http://www.westcoastrailways.co.uk/

Also if you decide to travel by car, remember that the person driving, its best for them if they don't drink, when you visit any brewery, distillery or any other drinking place, laws are very stricted on drink driving.

^^^ That sounds neat. The steam train ride.

I will try to confine my drinking to sitting in a pub with lodging within walking distance.!

It is beginning to look like that I will have to spend a month traveling. Laughing

Yeah the steam train goes over the Glenfinnan viaduct famous from the Harry Potter films.
Glenfinnan is also where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard in his failed bid for the British throne
