A European holiday?

I'm currently trying to work out whether my wife and I can (a) afford, (b) render worthwhile a trip to Europe. My brother is getting married in late August in Munich, which provides the occasion. Our sentiment is that if we are traipsing across the world we might as well take advantage of that fact. Yet, constraints of time back on this continent probably limit us to two weeks or so.

For my part, I'm quite keen to visit Scotland, primarily Skye and the Outer Hebrides. But stops in Glen Coe, Inverness (Culloden), Aberdeen, and Edinburgh are virtually compulsory.
If time permitted, some short stops in Rome, Athens, and Istanbul would also be ideal, for some classical history.

Thoughts and suggestions from readers are most welcome.

Would be excellent, I suspect time will not permit it. And, strictly speaking, is not in Europe.
