Outer Hebrides and north

Jump to last reply

Finally realizing our goal for the Outer Hebrides next May-June '16. Tentative itinerary at this point includes: arrive GLA (rested, we now only travel to Europe through Iceland with a stopover), drive to Oban for an overnight. Ferry Oban to Lochboisdale on S. Uist, then on to N.Uist, Harris and Lewis. Ferry Stornoway to Ullapool, then north to Durness and onto Thurso. Our return is by car to INV, fly to LGW to visit friends before home. We intend 3-3/12 weeks. My questions:
What would be the best spacing for time on each of these Isles, eg., more time on Lewis than Harris?
Has anyone been to Cape Wrath? Looks really hard to get to but maybe unmissable?
Travel is moveable mid-May through all of June - any preferences?
Any chance of avoiding midges in this time period?

Thanks to all you helpful folks in advance.
