People don't always realise how large the island is, and how lacking in public transport. A hire car is essential unless one joins a tour bus. Highly recommended is the night excursion to look at wildlife (which is nocturnal anyway) with Grant. His number is on the YHA notice board. He is enthusiastic and very informative.
