Mike - 

We went in end May/June, but only did the bottom bit. Inverness to Ullapool. That was enough. We scarpered off down the West Coast. Never again, Too many motor homes.......mostly foreign.

You can buy NC 500 cups, mugs, tea towels, umbrellas, stickers. 'T' shirts...you name it.....Just about sums it up. It must have been great to start with, but now it's just too popular.

All sounds a bit negative, but that's what we found. Perhaps it'll be quieter when you go....and please don't let my ramblings put you off though. 

Far better do the Ardnamurchan, then jump a ferry from Skye to the magic Outer Hebrides...Now you're talking!

We did it plus a lot more back in April. Started 21st April, ended 23rd May. Very little traffic, motorhomes a few, everyone waving. We started down at Culzean, onto Loch Lomond, then through Glencoe , over to Skye, up to Inverewe, onto Durness, along to Dunnet Bay, popped to John O'Groats, down to Brora, then Rosemarkie, down through Pitlochry and Aviemore to Melrose before returning over the border. Most amazing scenery. We live in North Wales and think that is good but Scotland scenery is something else. No midges either . I certainly wouldn't go during June/July/August as too busy from what I've read but any other time fine.
We only stayed on club sites (except one, Sango Sands and only because the clubs don't have sites that far up) , only booked 4 beforehand in case we wanted to linger anywhere but had no problems getting pitches. We covered 2050 miles and stayed at 14 sites including ones on the way from home and back. Absolutely loved everything about it.
