The Highlands

We will be touring the Highlands next year with intended visits to Fort Willliam, Fort Augustus, Isle of Mull and Isle of Skye, etc.... - could anyone suggest a good "base village" for our stay? We will be touring for about a week and wanted to stay somewhere "Central" to the area.

I think you'll find yourself very limited if you restrict your self to day tours of the islands.

I'd suggest 2 bases - Oban, for Mull and Fort William area; and somewhere like Kyle of Lochalsh (or somewhere on Skye) for the northerly parts.
