If you were thinking of heading round the coast between Aberdeen and Inverness then I would recommend not to. If you head North of Aberdeen on the A95 then turn off towards Dufftown just after Huntly then it drops you into the Spey Valley at Aberlour. (Where Walkers Shortbread is made). You can then follow the Spey Valley before turning up towards Carrbridge, this b road comes out on the A9 heading North towards Inverness, on the approach to Inverness you come over the top of the last hill before Inverness and the Moray Firth is spread before you with views to the Northern parts of Scotland. On a good day this is a spectacular approach. (and a more direct route so save you some miles and time).

You could even fit in a distillery tour at Glenfiddich in Dufftown, they are free tours and whilst the Whiskey might not be everyone's favourite it is a really good tour.

Ha ha...yes, midge repellent. Avon Skin-So-Soft dry oil spray is the best midge repellent there is....seriously!

I did a tour of Scotland in March (with snow on the ground) a couple of years back covering the same extremities (Inverness, Oban etc). The 2 places I would most strongly recommend - even though they're not strictly on your route directly and require detours - are Loch Rannoch, which is one of the most beautiful of locations with great roads for exhilarating driving and Sterling, a place I've visited many times and never tire of its history and its pubs (visit The Portcullis at the top of the castle hill and Nicky Tams bar, halfway down the hill - brilliant atmosphere and warm welcomes even to an Englishman)
