Hmm.. II never thought of a bus!! We had contemplated flying, but then we thought it might be a bit dodgy if we had no transport - what if something went wrong? Well rather my friend was - I was up for just catching the train (or plane, whatever!) and hitching a taxi ride over to some random spot.. But apparently notfly to Edinburgh and get a bus out to the highlands from there?
edit: of course you'll need a passport
We've just had a major convo about this actually - we reckon we're gunna make it like a group of 5 or 6, which would split the petrol price down pretty low!
