    Alright guys, I am planning a weekend tour (next summer around May/June?) up on the North West of Scotland on the Island of Skye and part tour of the mainland, covering the highest road in the UK, the Bealach and a tour around Skye.


    The Bealach

    Skye

    It will consist of challenging single track roads, with some stunning scenery. Coupled with what I think to be some of the best A and B roads in Scotland. I live on the island so know my way around very well and know all the roads. I plan to have one day touring around Skye and then the next a trip over the Bealach to Applecross for some lunch in the Applecross Inn, which has awesome food.


    The village I recommend people stay in would be the village of Kyleakin, where there is plenty of accomodation at all price levels and it has 3 bars, 2 of which sell some good food.


    The date has been confirmed as 21st and 22nd June.


    People have already started to book in the Mackinnon Country House Hotel in the village of kyleakin, for the dates of 20th, 21st and some the 22nd as they don't fancy driving home after the day of driving.


    Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Would love to join but unfortunately already touring highlands later in the summer. We have gone to Skye alot and would highly recommend this to anyone who is thinking of going. Also the Broadford to Elgol road is alot of fun, 3 miles down that road on the left is a perfect camping spot aswell. Hope it goes well man.

    No harm in doing it twice.


    Got to agree that road is pretty fun, haven't been down there is a while though.
