Not me (brrrrrr!) - but welcome to CF anyway .

Apart from general (and universal) liveaboard type advice (some folks on CF do (or have) liveaboard in colder climates in the US / Canada) then probably find more help over on YBW.com.

Re: liveaboard scotland

Cold weather but warm people. A friend lived at Corpach (above the locks). Look for a spot close to facilities - you will want hot showers and toilets within a (short) walk distance. I would check Inverness, channel (not river) side - I think I saw liveaboards there...

We did live aboard in LARGS. It was cold in the winter and there was a slight layer (very thin) of ice in the marina. We did enjoy it though.

Depending on your hull construction and insulation we found dealing with condensation and attendant mold/mildew issues to be challenging. For us, an electric dehumidifier is an essential piece of equipment for maintaining a happy boat in the winter.
