Scotland's Inhabited Islands Trip 
Can you see my tent? 
After cycling to all coastal.islands I headed home via the 5 freshwater inhabited islands which are
Moncreiffe Island - Perth
Innis Chonain-Loch Awe
Intavannach, Inchfad and Inchmurrin - all Loch Lomond 
61 Days 
2, 631 miles/4,235 km  of cycling
149,844ft/45,672m of ascent - the equivalent of 5 Everests.
214 hours on the bike

19.2kg weight of kit and bags on the bike including two full water bottles and 1kg of spare food and 3.5kg of camera equipment

86 ferries - amazingly there are still 13 ferries across the entire network that I didn't need to use for one reason or another.
14 boat trips

Every inhabited island - 96 in total including 91 coastal and 5 freshwater.  I used information from the 2011 census to determine my list of inhabited islands. Like all lists there are some anomalies. The 2011 census only lists 93 islands as 'permanently inhabited' (88 coastal plus 5 freshwater) but Papa Stronsay, South Walls, Fraoch-Eilean and Eriska should also be included with Eilean Tioram omitted for a grand total of 96

My original idea was to cycle from the most southerly point at the Mull of Galloway to the most northerly point of Unst but once the trip started I ended up visiting more of the extremities of Scotland which I've listed below.

Northernmost point – Out Stack, Shetland  60°51′N 0°52′W
Northernmost settlement – Skaw, Unst, Shetland 
Northernmost point of an inhabited island - Unst

Southernmost point – Mull of Galloway, Wigtownshire 54°38′N 4°52′W
Southernmost settlement – Cairngaan, Wigtownshire 
Westernmost settlement – Caolas, (Vatersay), Outer Hebrides 
Westernmost point of an inhabited island - Vatersay, Outer Hebrides

Easternmost settlement – Bruray, Out Skerries, Shetland
Easternmost Inhabited Point - Bruray, Shetland .
