Do it!

Include Loch Teacuis whilst you're up there but check on the tide before entering and take great care if it's low water springs...

Nope. I live 300+ miles away but we enjoyed a fabulous holiday up there in early September. Easy launching at Salen Jetty, fantastic wildlife, great fishing (we're strictly amateurs) and spectacular food

Apologies to the OP for thread drift....

Looks fantastic - I'd love to see a wild otter.
Was thinking about going via Strontian and launching there - not sure if the Corran ferry would take the car and rib or if I'd need to go the long route via Ft William...again sorry to the OP

Assume double the costs for the ferry? That was my gut feel, I'd guess the Oban / Mull ferry would be the same? Maybe best to accept the extra time on the journey. Will need to look into it.

Yip, its not that expensive IIRC its less than a tenner, but you basically pay for 2 cars to take a trailer (and might have to queue a little longer). It saves 40 odd twisty miles, probably about an hour?

It's 17.80 in total for car and trailer each way. Dropped lucky both ways and didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes for the ferry. Money well spent IMHO.
