    Seriously get it done mate.

    Best times I've ever had on a bike.
    New bike for me next year and plan on going on a few tours with it.

    Skye in Spring is a bit of a no go mate. It'll still be properly frosty to be honest. Late spring maybe.

    Been a few times on the bike, and normally late summer.

    Best times to hit Skye would be late May till mid September.

    Thanks for that mate, will look a bit later and have a good look at the threads on here for how much time to take off and best scenic routes.
    Be good to get up to stornoway too .maybe put some faces to names on the way.

    Let me know when you plan on heading up. Can easily give you some routes dependant on your time constraints.
