Maclean Carruthers Kayak, Mellon Charles

3-8-16 Maclean (23)

Many folk come up to this are every year on holiday, some come multiple times a year. Eileen Andrew and JJ booked a session with me, they then invited Gordon and Ben along – friends in Edinburgh and all of them regular visitors up here. Ben had been paddling with me before, so knew a few of my games already. We had some very inquisitive seals, swimming nice and close to get a good look at us.

Waddell & Co Kayak, Mellon Charles

29-7-16 Waddell & Co (21)

Nick, Kerry, Anita and Barry met me to explore the coastline by kayak. Nick and Kerry have a house here in Mellon Charles and have thoughts of getting some kayaks, so they came out with me to try out some boats and learn some skills. We had a breezy afternoon, but it was a good session on the water. Anita and Barry will hopefully get to paddle in the hotter climate of Australia where they plan to move to soon.

29-7-16 Green (13)Donna, Jed and Christy met me at the boom beach in Mellon Charles. Coming across from the Isle of Ewe, they had already been on a boat this morning. Donna had grown up on the island, they where back in the area for a few weeks. Donna knows the waters well but had never paddled around them in a kayak. They all had a great time exploring the rocky coastline, playing some games and getting drenched!

Gough & Nelson Kayak, Mellon Charles

24-7-16 Nelson & Gough (10)

24-7-16 Nelson & Gough (29)Lorna had more friends up in the area, so Maureen, Cerys along with Iain and Lorna joined me on a sunny calm afternoon at Mellon Charles. Cerys paddles a lot at home but her mum hasn’t done any. After a short while on the water Maureen realised that it is actually fun, so had a fantastic time. Iain and Lorna have paddled with me many many times before, so know my normal games but still seemed to enjoy every minute.24-7-16 Nelson & Gough (20)




We had a low tide and very calm water, so where able to explore every nook and cranny of the coastline, seeing hundreds of star fish, plenty of urchins and some fantastic anemones.
