    September is very busy trying to get accommodation.
    On the road up on the A87 at Shielbridge hang a left onto the old military road to Glenelg catch the old ferry over to Skye .
    Views are stunning up and over to Glenelg and on Skye side . No need to book the ferry possible may be a small queue.
    Oldest ferry still working.

    We were up on Skye in our campervan in mid May and even struggled to find a pitch at a campsite. Whilst all the B&B's we passed had 'No Vacancies' signs outside.
    Talking to the locals, they reckon it's because of the popularity of the NC500. It appears the whole of the north of Scotland is getting busy almost all year round, necessitating booking way ahead. A real pain for those of us who don't plan in advance.

    My sister runs a campsite and has a wee cottage to rent out - the old croft house, it was ruin, left over from the clearances. Iain built it up himself using the original stone and with a turf roof. It is only a single bedroom for two, it is very popular and looks over the cliffs and sea at Camus Mor.

    Everywhere was booked solid last month when we were there. North and South Uist, Harris and Lewis, Skye and mainland Scotland. Rows of No Vacancies signs. Many B and Bs are refusing 1 night bookings too, as this increases cost and workload. Booking in advance is the only way to guarantee accommodation.

    Couple of nice b&bs a hotel and a pub in Dornie. Some good b&bs in Kyleakin. I like Kyleakin more than the Kyle of lochalsh . But there's a couple of hotels and several b&bs there too. The doc at the Kyle hails from Kirkiston Drive in Belfast
    What we need are clearly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!

    Makes me realise how lucky I am to have a permanent holiday home (girlfriends house!) for whenever I go up there!!
    I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem.

    Yesterday Police Scotland were advising tourists that Skye was full! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-4087...-many-tourists

    At this rate Robbie the Pict will be starting a campaign to bring back tolls for the bridge!

    Don't know if you've considered stopping in Mallaig? My brother and his wife have a B&B there, right beside the West Highland Hotel. He has a large garage that we usually lock the bikes in overnight. Options of the early ferry to Skye, have the day there and get the last boat back without having to take all your luggage.
