CalMac Hopscotch
The Highlands
Oban & Mull

Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) operate ferries to many of the islands of Scotland.   The ferries and the islands vary from small to very large.   They offer special tickets called Island Hopscotch which allow passengers to travel on several related routes.   Several of these tickets cover the Highlands, so armed with a camera and a sou'wester I ventured forth last July.
