I can understand the need to amend the Skye leg to make it more manageable. However if the Friday start is to be from Fort William, then presumably that means staying Thursday night in the town or somewhere nearby? If so, that's another 90 miles and a couple of hours beyond Dumbarton which we Sassenachs need to factor in.
Can I put in a plea for a finish in Perth rather than Dumbarton? That could be achieved by doing the 'first thoughts' Friday route in reverse. We did Glencoe and the 'Scotsburgring' this year so might it not add more interest to revisit the 2012 route? The A939 over the Lecht and the A93 over the Cairnwell are a far better drive than the A82 down Loch Ness. A finish at Perth also gives those from south of the border who desire it the choice of taking a more scenic route home than mile upon mile of motorway.
