I think you've missed the point of the question...

He didn't ask where was the best, or the prettiest, he asked where was the most interesting. Although I suppose that depends what interests you: industrial architecture, other boats or geological features.

And Willk you are disqualified because:

(i) He said the UK
(ii) Launch from anywhere does not equal cruise for 90 mins to get where you actually want to be!

Missed that bit P. Bit Parochial of him but his rules is the rules...

I would argue that you have read my post selectively - patently to reach Islay, you have to launch from and pass by some spectacular coastline first. The view from the middle is superb.

Agree with BoristheBold for places I am familiar with, but would love to explore Scotlands west coast and islands.
This might upset a few, but the Jurassic coast has two facets, and although wild,west of Portland is boring, and is best viewed on foot or from one of the coastal beer stops.
