    It should be good.
    Thought it was 180 miles ish ?

    Will some need to refuel in that short distance ?

    More than you'd think.

    Oop North you've got the following (heading from the North coast down the West side):

    Bettyhill
    Kyle of Tongue
    Durness
    Scourie
    Lochinver
    Ullapool
    Lairg (in the middle)

    Heading Sooth from Ulllapool

    One in between Ullapool and Gairloch (can't remember name of village).
    Gairloch
    Applecross
    Loch Carron

    Around 30-40 miles in between fuel stations on average.

    Sounds like it may be an option. Thanks for the list

    Fink it is....but they do the best Black Pudding in Christendom in Aultbea - Ritchies of Aultbea......worth running out of fuel for. If you top up in Ullapool, you should have enough* to get to Gairloch anyway.

    Err..actually, it could be Laide, I've never paid that much attention when passing through...

    Hang on a minute.......there's something fundamentally wrong here.

    How come there's a load of Jocks asking an Englishman for directions around the North of Scotland?........What a sad day for Scotlandshire....

    After doing a couple of years on a RIB out of Groats as a tour/wildlife guide I can honestly say that you would not believe the amount of Scots who said "Wot's that island, then?"
