Time to start planning the big Scotland week, June or July again I expect when it's hot and sunny.
it's early to start on this I know but there were suggestions at the last one that we make it more of a mini tour which will take some organising.
The options are:
1. Camp at Fort Augustus again for a week. Or somewhere else if we want a bit of variety, but I do like fort Gus.
2. Bit of a tour, couple of nights at Fort Gus, couple of nights Ullapool and something else, possibly Skye or the Cairngorms. Could do Glencoe on the way back, the Clachaig of course, for those that want the midge experience.
The plan would be to pick places with campsites, hotels and b&b's to suite all pockets.
3. Book a house for a week. This would take the most planning and I would want money up front which might be a problem for some people.
What are your thoughts?

@Steve, Stu and I went to Skye at the beginning of September via Oban and then over to Kinlochewe and back via Edinburgh.. 4 days of heaven on earth.
We found several nice places and are in fact planning on going up to Scotland again next year (at least a couple of times).
The Hotel we stayed in for one night, at Kinlochewe had a bunk barn (full, when we needed it!) but the bar and food was divine. I think that's where we will be heading as its on the end of the Applecross road and the coast road from Skye
Petrol station less than 100 yrds away too (hint, hint Stu!!) We didnt manage to get as far as Ullapool - see line above!
One of my colleagues has a place overlooking Loch Tay sleeps 6 but there are other types of accommodation available on the estate too (might be a bit pricey as it is more top end than B&B?) Stu n I are going up there in February (yes we are mad!) so can check it out if you want me to.
We have done Fort Augustus, and it wos triffic. But I vote we go a little bit further north. Skye for a coupla days in a hostel, then Ullapool in a self-catering cottage . A boon if the weather turns crap.
@Steve, yes to plan 1 or 2, but I'd not commit in advance to a share of a house for a week. Either one base or a move every other day to places where there are options for B&B and camping, please. Let individuals choose/book/pay for what suits them.
Schools in Scotland break up at end June, so the whole of July is school holiday, albeit for a small population!
