A9 Roadworks

Hi Guys, visiting family on Mull this September and going up to Ullapool. Was planning to come back via A9 but not sure about delays in the roadworks, is there a better route ? 
Thanks Adrian.

A835/A9 to Inverness then the A82 (Loch Ness, Fort William, Glencoe) to Glasgow and then M74/M6 south to England. It’ll take you longer (assuming minimum road works on A9) since the A82 has no dual carriageways until you are at the south end of Loch Lomond and you’ll be stopping plenty of times to enjoy the stunning scenery. A82 perfect driving!!

Depends on how big a hurry you are in to get home, you could take the A9 south of Inverness coming off at Carrbridge, (A938) heading to Granton on Spey, then turn onto A939 Tomintoul / Lecht Crathie, then right onto A93 (passing Balmoral) then onto Braemar / Glenshee / Blairgowrie / Perth.
Then you have a choice either pick up the A9 Dunblane / Stirling / Cumbernauld then onto M74 - M6 to Englandshire, or M90 south to Edinburgh (going over the impressive Queensferry crossing), then onto Edinburgh and several scenic routes to take you south to Newcastle then pick up the M1.
None of this is time saving, however you will drive some draw dropping roads & see some immense scenery especially the Granton on Spey to Balmoral leg
If you choose this route let me know how you get on

I drive the A9 every week and there are no road works as such... there is work going on, as it has for a few years, but the traffic flows nicely on these sections. 95% of the work is being carried out down at Perth at the very start/end of the A9.

Thanks guys for taking time to reply. As we are going up the Loch Lomond route would be good to do a round trip so I think will go with Steve's option, looks an interesting route. Also hope to visit Jim Clark museum at Duns on way down so will be on correct side, but only open Fri-Sun at moment, maybe Sept will will give more options.

Steve's route is good.
Take it from a local with experience of this route south.
Best driving road south imo.
