Looking great. We´ve been there in August 2010, but we took the "short round" (no Islands!). Ferry from Amsterdam to Newcastle, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness, Helmsdale, Durness, Ullapool, Fort Augustus, Nevis Range, Glasgow, Newcastle, Amsterdam.
As you said, wonderful Land, nice People, fascinating Sights but we were lucky with the Midges( seemed they didn´t like us
perhaps we´ll repeat this journey... someday...
