Done it quite a few times, before it was branded too (which I do think is a good thing) 

Thoroughly recommend it, make sure you plan fuel stops in advance, especially if you're planning to do a Saturday/Sunday run. We were at a stop in Bettyhill a couple of years ago when a young couple came into the hotel on Saturday evening looking for fuel. The local petrol station didn't open on Sunday and the nearest one that would be open is 40 miles away, they ended up with an enforced stopover and a trip around the village knocking on doors on Sunday to see if someone had a can of fuel.

Try this if you've not already seen it.

We did a lot of the Western section this year, actually a  few weeks before it sort of hit the headlines. There'not a lot up there in the way of services etc and the fear has to be it makes everything a bit more expensive and what a lot of people have enjoyed for years anyway becomes over popular and potentially spoilt. But then again a lot of it is very remote and perhaps the more business the better.

Planning on doing it next year. Not sure if it'll be on the bike (motor not pedally like Ellie!) or in the yet-to-arrive MX-5. Either way it looks great.
