Has anybody done it and got any heads up or recommendations?

Some brilliant roads and views around there. The Beallach-na-ba to Applecross is a must. Torridan is a rival to Glen Coe and much, much quieter. The road round to Ullapool has long blasts, especially past Loch Maree and then tight twists and feels so remote.

There is a debit card 24 hour petrol station in Lochcarron village and I do not remember seeing another petrol station until Ullapool.

Cheers for that Mate have read up and checked the route. Some say it one of the best biking roads in Europe. Just hope everything comes together and we keep the good weather. Will keep you all posted

Just back from Scotland in June. Did the ferry to Troon and then travelled via Largs to Gourock. Ferry to Hunters Quay then followed the road to Inverary, the long way round to Oban and up to Fort William as our base. Then spent 2 days around Mallaig, Arisaig, Strontian and then onto Skye visiting Portree and Dunvegan. Back to Fort William via the Skye Bridge and Spean Bridge (Commando Memorial). Back to Troon the next day via Glencoe, Tyndrum, Inverary and Dunoon. A great trip with great roads. Enjoy :-)
