What about a Western isles tour, you can get island hopper ferry passes valid for a few days enabling you to travel unlimited on Calmac ferries.
Start at Barra and work up to Lewis or vice versa.
Mega scenery they reckon on some of the roads
Craig - cheers could be a runner!
Could you do a rough proposal scoping ferry cost mileage and timing - ie which ferries and how many overnights and if so where and we can gauge the level of interest.
Aye no worries,
I will have a proper look at it in the new year.

What sort of dates and for how long a trip? A night camping and one in a B & B or all tenting etc etc?

Bear in mind that they are mostly just preliminary dates which can and will change as the plans progress.

Would love to see a full calendar though, Trackdays, Hillclimbs etc etc.

Excellent! Last year was a great day. The challenge is to get the weather as good!

We did it back in 2007, the place is great for a day out scooting around.

At the very north tip of the island


random skye road (may not be but think it is, maybe Applecross coastal road)

If we do Arran I may go across the night before to get a brekkie lap in as the first ferry is not that early.

Would be bad stuck behind a caravan for 58 miles!
Anyone got a lap record for Clydeschleiffe!
If you got stuck behind a caravan, could you not just do a u-turn and go the other way?laugh Which way would we do the lap, clockwise or anti-clockwise?
