Stark paddle, Poolewe

Jamie, Gail, Tommy, Leo and Felix met me to get out on the water. We headed out in a mixture of boats – canoes, sea kayak, sit on top kayak and little kayak.

Jenkins kayak, Poolewe

Maryanne, Andrew, Evie and Poppy met me in Poolewe for an adventure on the water. They’ve got some inflatable boats, so we worked on a few paddling skills, had some fun and watched some wildlife, this included two otters frolicking in front of us at one point.

Frullani Kettles kayak, Gairloch

Jon, Kelly, Joe, Emma, Kellie, Isacc, Rubin and Dylan all met me again for another fun session on the water. They’d paddled with me a little over a year ago from near Poolewe. This time we had mirror like calm water to splash about on.

RBP kayak, Gairloch

Cameron, Rachael, Jean and Lorna joined me for a paddle from Gairloch harbour. We were out so that Cameron could film us as a promotional video for Visit Wester Ross. Cameron’s business is RedBeard Productions, a great little video production company.

Bob kayak, Loch Ewe

Bob is completing the Haswell Smith islands of Scotland – a list of 168 islands above a certain size. His aim is to reach the high point on each of these islands. We paddled across and then headed up to the 73m high point at the north western end.

Dearden kayak, Gairloch

Suzanne and Brian joined me again, just over a year since the last time. We had hoped to get out on the water last week as well but the wind had different ideas. A lovely calm day and low tide meant we could spot lots of starfish, urchins and jellyfish.

Kate kayak, Gairloch

Kate joined me on a very calm day amongst windy ones. When we stopped for a brew on a little island we had a seal come in very close to watch us, I think he fancied a hot chocolate!

Eddie & Co kayak, Gairloch

Eddie, Alan, Colin and David met me on a calmer afternoon than it has been lately. It was a nice break in the weather to get out on the water. We had four seals putting on a display as we enjoyed our brew on a remote beach.

Tony and Fiona kayak, Gairloch

Tony and Fiona booked a full day paddling with me, the weather was due to get windy later on in the day so we opted to start early and try to get off before it got too bumpy. Turned out that the majority of our paddle was very calm and relaxing, the worst bit was the final bit whilst in the harbour returning to the slipway. Five otters spotted today, always nice to see them frolicking around in the water and on the rocks!

Mushayis kayak, Poolewe

Emilia, Danny, Hannah, Gabbi and Ella met me for an afternoon kayaking during their highlands weekend mini holiday. We had some fun playing games, exploring the coastline and munching on seaweed.

Gray kayak, Poolewe

Chris, Lee and Robert joined me for an afternoon kayaking at Poolewe. Chris had been out kayaking earlier on in the year and was keen to get out again with a bit of tuition.

Bland kayak, Poolewe

Nick, Anita, Rowan and Murron joined me to explore the coastline by kayak. We headed around Inverewe garden, practicing some skills, spotting wildlife and enjoying the scenery.
