    Going to do some touring in Scottish Highlands,usually just takes spare tubes. Should I consider taking a spare chain and a tyre?

    Just take a tyre boot and a quick link for your chain. Both much lighter and easier to stowe.

    a whole spare chain is going it some onnthe pessimism stakes

    a puncture repair kit isn't a lot of weight/space and the spare tube only works once

    I'm not sure I've ever damaged a tyre so badly that it couldn't be bodged well enough to ride to somewhere with a new tyre
