That's the best time of year to do it.I did 750 miles over 3 days April '14 up to Durness then down to Skye in sunshine and travelled for 40 miles between Durness and Ullapool before I came up behind a car.

I'm pretty sure it is but I've just noticed that piece of road isn't actually on the route! :laugh:

I did a lot of that route last September as part of the Ride Magazine tour of Scotland tour. Fantastic roads and I even had some good weather to boot.
