nice roads and pretty quiet...

Not now it ain`t...lots of caravans heading up the A82...

For great roads...A82...crack onto the A87...great run...turn for Lochcarron....then head to Achnasheen...then to Ullapool the head up to Bettyhill through Scourie and over the Kyleskean brig...then back down through Sutherland to the Black Isle...onto Speyside then down to Glenshee...then to Perth then head to Creiff...Callendar....Trossachs...Stirling...probably some of the best routes there:smokin: ...but up in the N/W there's a myriad of roads...just fill up at any given opportunity as `Jimmy McScriminger` the garage man from the `Heelands` might not be open.

Baz's tips are directly on target - That N.W. corner up beyond Ullapool is pretty good - the'A' class roads ar usually very well surfaced - I rather like the road to the North of Ullapool - tap Kylesku into you map - lovely sweeping concrete bridge built on a curve - Yippee!

If you go over the bridge to the Isle of Skye - the roads there can offer some fun, fun, fun. The Isle of Mull also has fantastic roads - a five minute ferry crossing not that far from Fort William via Corran.

Just don't fall off (missing free roaming wildlife) - Some of the hospitals resemble Zimbabwe and back up is perhaps several hours away in Glasgow.
