As the title says I will be driving from Cairnryan to Lewis on Monday 12 September, to join friends in a lodge. I can't travel on the ferry out of Belfast until late Sunday night at the earliest. Obviously l I would like to get to Lewis as quickly as possible (relatively speaking) as I wiil already have missed a couple of days of the let. Advice so far is Ullapool via Inverness. Any advice on route and timings would be appreciated.
I have done the drive to Rogart, Sutherland a couple of times so I'm familiar with part of the route. It seems that my trip revolves around arriving in time for a 17:30 sailing.
Any advice gratefully received.
