Yes, I've thought of that. You can get some fairly cheap boats in the uk, but I think buying one in Inverness then hoping to sell it a week or so later would be a bit risky and expensive. I think rental would probably be the best option. If I can't get anything else then a kayak is my other option.

However, this might change closer to the time- Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to do this trip now till next year. Maybe next year I'll be in a better position to buy a boat. Maybe I'm planning too far ahead

Can't do that now.

A trip round Scotland has got to be worth the while. I know I'll never sail there from Oz but a trailer sailor jaunt could be lots of fun. I'd love to do that with the Wombet. Drop the boat in at a likely looking spot, spend a couple of days roughing it then check into a half way decent pub for a decent feed and too much beer and whisky. YaY !!

Couple of locations for a certain anti heroic movie made in Scotland would be hot spots to visit.
