This three week tour from Sat 12 May - Sun 3 June, will explore the North-West Coast of Scotland, and the islands of Skye, Harris and Lewis. Accommodation will be in hostels and bunkhouses, and transport will be by car (car sharing will be available). The tour starts in Portree and North Skye (Trotternish) and then goes to the Outer Hebrides, with stops at Tarbet and Stornaway, returning from there to the mainland at Ullapool. The tour then works north through Assynt to the most north-westerly point on the Scottish mainland at Cape Wrath, before heading homewards, with two nights in Inverness, and a stop at Kirk Yelton on the English border. If you can't spare (or afford) three weeks you can always come for part of the tour - Ullapool could be a good place to join or leave. Please contact Don soon if you want to join the trip.
