Knoydart Sea Kayak Trip

This is a combined paddling and hillwalking trip which is being run by Sandy running from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 july 2012. The plan at the moment is to meet at the container on the Friday night at around 17.00 to be up at Kinloch Hourn for around 21.00 which is high water in Loch Hourn. We will then paddle the 10 kms to Barrisdale Bay where we will camp overnight. Saturday will be a hillwalk with the premium route being a circuit of Coire Dhorrcail on Ladhar Bheinn (pronounced Larven). Should a day's walking not suit there is the option of sea paddling on Loch Hourn. There are alternative low level walks also. Sunday will be a paddle on Loch Hourn back to Kinloch Hourn. You will need to be self sufficient with regards to camping and hillwalking equipment although Sandy will try to arrange for tent-sharing to reduce the amount of kit that we need to take. To...

Lochranza Arran Trip, April 2012

This trip happened over the weekend of the 14/15 of April. In total, 15 club members turned up for this trip away, some members were opting to take the Bus to the Hostel, others walking. The majority paddled up from Brodick to the Hostel in Lochranza. Others paddled from different locations such as Largs via the Kyle’s of Bute to Lochranza or from Portencross direct to Lochranza, such were the options!!! The weather was kind us overall, although paddling up from Brodick some might disagree with this point with a steady Force 3-4 in our faces coupled with low temperatures made this paddle a bit more of a challenge. There was also a Naval exercise in the area and the delayed wake from the ships was quite impressive! With clear skies the Arran hills were looking very impressive as we paddled passed Sanox. Once at the Hostel we all managed to get sorted out and feed. It was then off to the Pub, where we met the local Deer just sitting...
