Scotland trip

Hi looking for some advice re roads north of the border.  We're planning a trip to Orkney the first week in August and will be travelling to Loch Lomond, then up the west coast, catching the ferry over, a couple of nights on the islands then back down the East coast to stay near Edinburgh on the way home.  Can anyone suggest any "must do" roads for the bikes... and any roads that we'd be better off avoiding for the support van carrying all the camping kit & the beer!!

Also if anyone knows of any decent campsites or pubs with camping on the east coast Edinburgh/Perth way on could you post details as I'm struggling to find one!

,,,,and apologies in advance if you get held up by a slow moving blue van in August!!

Stevebaldy......okay,,,,,okay .....Mr Funny!!!! I've been doing exams so does that count as official excuse slip????:lol: :tongue:

Jon66 thanks for the advice re the A9 and Kam....I hoped you'd post as I know this is your neck of the woods so very grateful for the local knowledge.......the guys are looking forward to the extra routes you've suggested for the bikes :smile

As I've said look out for a blue van by Loch Lomond & then to Loch Ness first week in August ....being buzzed by a Trumpet, Tiger, the last count....more to follow.....and then upwards & onwards to Okney......Kam's refuel stops  look brilliant so hopefully see you there!! :smileThanks for the info
