Road Trip to Lochalsh!!

I've always wanted to see Kyle of Lochalsh everb since I saw Michael Palin's train travel show yonks ago.

My wife and I are visiting the UK this summer and I want to at least see the countryside between Inverness and Lochalsh. From reading other comments I've decided a car would be best for the trip.

We lived in England for seven years in the 70s/80s and visited since then so driving isn't that daunting to us. We never gave Scotland the attention it deserves, camping there for a horribly wet week in Aug. 79, so want to spend time there this time.

I can (sadly) go on record as apparently being the only American who doesn't have Scottish roots.

We are walkers and would like some advice on where to hike/go on the West coast. Is a visit to Skye worth the effort?

There is whisky in Scotland. Not Scotch.

Just trying to manage expectations... the views around Kyle are probably worth getting there for, rather than the town itself.

Places not to miss - 7 sisters of kintail; Mam Ratagan; Glenelg; Applecross; Torridons. And yes, Skye is worth it.

There are some fantastic walks on the Mainland. Kyle Village is an ideal base and Kyle and the surrounding areas have much to offer.

Skye too is most certainly worth a visit and I believe there are some fantastic walks to be had on Skye.

A car would be best, although there is a good public transport service. The train trip from Inverness to Kyle is spectacular!

Have a lovely holiday!
