Clutch replacement - rip off?

I've been quoted £560 by Kwik-Fit to replace a burnt-out clutch and think this is excessive. Am I correct? Unfortunately the car is already in their garage and I would have to find another garage which would be able to tow it. Any advice greatly appreciated!

Check with Mr Clutch, plus, of course, the cost of towing your car from Kwik Fit to Mr Clutch. If the car is a diesel, the high price will be because the job includes a new Dual Mass Flywheel as well as the clutch.
