Train to Mallaig, stowing the kayak in the overhead lockers.

Make sure it is removed from the train, and not left as a way to get rid of it!

As you get off the train, you accidentally whack somebody with the kayak. Because of this recklessness, you go to Inverness Prison! You get out a few days later, and get the kayak back.
