I've attached the route details from our trip so you guys can drive some of the roads yourselves if you get the chance. Mileages are the actual ones I recorded from home back to home so you have an idea each day pans out. 

 

We left around 9am each morning after a hearty full Scottish breakfast and with stops for food and drink and lots of photo taking stopped at around 7pm. So long days but to be fair they passed pretty quickly as each day was just wow can the views and roads get any better? 

 

I would probably change one or two of the routes taken as some of the roads were just a little too tight, the single track roads slowed us down as you really couldn't see more than a a few yards at times because of tight bends and blind summits. 

 

I've included names of the hotels we stayed in, only one I'd change would be the one in Ullapool as it was a bit tired. All can be booked online and cost around £35 per night each.

Finally to save me time inserting links I've created a playlist on YouTube, here's the link to my channel. I've still got a lot of footage to edit and upload yet, (how slow is YouTube!!! and it kills the quality from what I have on my laptop) Keep checking back to see new videos.

Then a couple from day 2 after finishing Applecross pass this is coast road with views of Skye, narrow one track road with passing places. At the start of this one you can see  group of deer just by the side of the road on the right.

 

Here's a couple of pictures I took as I drove past, could almost reach out and touch them

Sorry guys this should have been the first video really as we cross the border, take a note of the music that was playing at the time quite appropriate in a way, and then the A83 from Arrochar to Inveraray.
