The loch ness in Scotland.

Although there are several carriers doing domestic flights in Scotland it's hardly worth the price unless there's no other way to get to the islands. Haggis Backpackers bus service runs between Scotland's Youth Hostels as does Go Blue Banana. Citylink bus company (Scotland's major player) has a tourist pass which can be used on all their buses. Scotland's train routes are stunning but limited and expensive. Roads are generally good and far less busy than those in England. On back roads you may have only one lane and petrol stations may be few and far between (as well as extremely pricey). Boats run to most of the islands from Oban Mallaig and Ullapool or you can get a ferry from Aberdeen to Orkney or Shetland.
