I think it depends on what you want to do when up here for the time it takes. If you want to stick to the route you really should spend a couple of days at least in an area. I would say  2 days Applecross,  2 days Ullapool or Assynt, 2 days Durness, 2 days Golspie and then Inverness if wanting a bit of small city life at the end. 
ideally spending a week in 1area and going on different travels from a base each day. There is a lot to do if you look in the right places

I might nip up to Uist, for a wee long weekend.

I've been in Dunbeath all week and pinging about the place from there.

 

It's been awesome. 👍

I'd have loved to but the wee man is still to wee for that sort of thing and gets grumpy after any more than half an hour in the backpack.

Lovely place, but it'll take you most of the weekend to get there and back!

Smart move. Went to Eriskay a few years back, have genuinely travelled to Beijing quicker!

Definitely worth the 12 hour trip though, stunning place. As are the Uists, Barra etc.

Don't be going swimming in the Fjords, it'll be freezing.

This just came up

on my Fb memories, the day I was working in Durness and decided to go to Balnakeil beach to have my lunch. Looked like the cows had decided to go there to sunbathe.

The Billy Connolly North Sea story comes to mind, GT. I take it, he's not talking to you. :D

Since your up there, @Governor Tarkin. You should power up on some of that famous tidal energy.
