Don,t need a ferry for Skye as there is a bridge. Mull is a good size island and would fill a couple of days, ferry from Lochaline is only a few pounds for a bike.

Not too fussed about ticking I've done this box, how much are the ferries? Do I have to book? Cheers.
Applecross campsite has it's own Facebook page,it's on there.

The time has come, 9am Thursday morning from Hertford to alnwick, Friday to Inverness, then chase the weather! I know that there are more of you up at that time, look out for a BMW 1150gs in white and a KTM 990 adventure s. V-rider you still heading up on the Saturday? Anyone else with last minute tips are welcome. Thanks in advance Skinny.

Hi Skinny,
I won't be up Scotland way until the Sunday / Monday. Could always PM me your phone number and link up somewhere in our travels?
