When I wrote The Scottish Sea Kayak Trail guide book, I recommended against leaving kayaks unattended in Tobermory overnight.
However, I'm told by people planning to kayak the route that they want to spend a night in this lovely little tourist town. So they ask, "where's the least worst place to leave the kayaks?"
It's not theft that's the main problem, it's drunken holiday-makers staggering out of the bars, seeing the kayaks and thinking, "I could paddle that".
So I've found a least worst option. I've posted details in the Author Updates section of the ScottishSeaKayakTrail.com along with other updates and a couple of corrections.
Yes, mistakes have been found in the book.
There are also two forums where people can share advice about the trail, and those offering services like accommodation or kayak hire, can post details.
