Road to the Isles
Inverie & Whisky
Kintyre calls itself the mainland island because it's only connected to the mainland at Tarbert by a half mile strip of land. Knoydart has a much better claim to such a title - not geographically - it's solidly attached to the mainland, but getting there overland is a big problem. There are no public roads to Inverie, the main settlement, and the only real access is by boat from Mallaig - or you can hike some 20 miles if you're up to it.
