Have been vacillating between which route to take from Skye to Inverness:
1) Northern - Drive from Kyle of Lochalsh (drive down to see Eilean Donan ) then up through Plockton, Shieldaig, Torridon (enjoy a short hike), Kinlochewe and into Inverness
2) Drive from Kyle of Lochalsh to Plockton, then down by Eilean Donan and continue via A87 - A887 - A82 up the west side of Loch Ness (stopping to see Urquhart Castle) and into Inverness
Note: This will be early Sept. and we have the ENTIRE day open for the drive from Skye to Inverness, to stop, enjoy and explore. We will have already spent a couple days in Glencoe hiking and plan on taking the road via Glenfinnen and Malliag on our way to Skye and the Skye Bridge off the island.
Opinions about which route? Preferences regarding landscapes, etc.? Insights?
