fuel is not easy to find once past Aviemore
This was from the thread about traveling to Sango Sands campsite at Durness.
This is a bit of a misconception. Yes fuel stations are not as frequent as further down south but we do manage up here!
For example on the A9 north of Inverness you will find the following fuel stations on your route to Durness.
Tore roundabout (4th exit - 100 yds)
Dingwall, just off A9 - Tesco, 24 hour
Morrison's supermarket near Alness, 24 hour
Skiach Services near Invergordon, 24 hour - also a turn-off point for going to Durness
Ken's Garage, Kildary, 24 hour
Tain - Asda, 24 hour, Tesco, 24 hour, north of Tain by Lidl (not 24 hour)
If you are going to Durness this is a good turn-off point
This is just those on the A9 or nearby.
If you are continuing on the A9 north you will get fuel at:
Evelix by Dornoch, also has LPG

Fuel is more expensive up in the Highlands along with extra p&p on many deliveries. However it's a small price to pay for living in such a wonderful location.
