Take the high road or the low road to Skye?

Jump to last reply

Had been planning to take the southern route from Inverness to Skye (down Loch Ness, stop at Castles Urquhart & Eilean Donan enroute). And then, when headed back, go by ferry, stop at the Mallaig beaches...

A friend, who went to school in Scotland and recently returned from her honeymoon there, suggested a different route. She said I could still see Castle Urquhart and then (sort of) head north and take the "high" road. It would allow us to go via Plockton. Maybe a detour to lunch at Loch Maree... would only add an hour to the drive (albeit a long one either way).

But then I'd have to choose between taking the bridge off Skye to go past Eilean Donan OR take the ferry to Mallaig and see the beaches in Arsaig (or do I have that reversed?)
The return trip is via Glen Coe, finishing in the Lake Menteith area.

It all sounds beautiful, but does anyone have advice on how to choose?
Thanks in advance.
