I have been to Scotland many times and always rent a car in one of the cities and then drive. This time I would like to take the train to either Mallaig or Kyle of Lochalsh and pick up a car there before heading to Skye and then out to some of the Western Isles. I am trying to avoid the long drive so I can really enjoy the scenery this time.
So my question is about when and where to rent a car. Is it possible at those train stations along the West Coast? Or is it even possible out on the islands?
