I'm doing a driving vacation in Scotland for 4 weeks in July 2018. If I visit the Orkneys, Skye and Mull/Iona, is there any reason to make a special effort to add Lewis/Harris/North Uist to my itinerary. Are they "travel worthy" enough that I shouldn't miss them?
If I skip them, I could eliminate a number of car ferry passages and the need to seek (scarce) lodgings on the Outer Hebrides in July. I could go from the Orkneys to Ullapool, through the Wester Ross and across the bridge to Skye if I pursue this alternate plan.
Looking for some sage advice as I realize I'm already tardy with regards to finding good lodging on Skye/Lewis/Orkneys even though it's not even yet February!!
