I'm planning my Scotland road trip for the end of May. After spending the night in Oban, I'll be driving to Ft William (I already figured out that route). The third leg of the trip involves driving from Ft William to Carbost in Skye where I already reserved my accommodations.
I want the drive to be the highlight of the trip so I'm planning to drive each leg through beautiful scenery with quick stops along the way for photo ops / short walks.
This is what I came up with for this third leg:
The idea is to leave Ft William and take a longer drive by Loch Sunart and then see Castle Tioram. Take a detour to take some photos of the Glenfinnan viaduct (if time allows, not sure about the times for the ferry to Skye yet). Drive to Mallaig, get on the ferry to Skye then take a quick detour to Elgol to see the view of the Cuillins. From there, drive to Carbost and spend the night.
Does this make sense (especially with trying to work the ferry around these plans)?
The following couple of days will be spent in Skye, I have some routes in mind that I will probably post in the Skye forums.
