Whitehead Kayak, Loch Shieldaig

5-8-16 Whitehead (5)

5-8-16 Whitehead (3)It was a busy day, so I was meeting Emily, Tim, Elliot and George in the evening near the Shieldaig Lodge Hotel. We hadn’t managed to get out the morning before due to the wind speeds so we managed to fit it in now. Like with the rest of the day the midges found us early on, but soon got left behind on land as we paddled away from them. George took a quick dip early on in the session, I think a piranha to the face was partly to blame! Everyone else stayed dryish, ignoring the rain, till the end when Tim and George managed to go for a swim whilst Emily and Elliot kept their balance.

Murray Paddle, Loch Shieldaig

5-8-16 Murray (21)

Alistair, Debra, Robert and Alex met me for a good session on the water, we started fighting the midges, but soon moved onto the beach to escape them. We had a good session paddling around the loch and playing games. Being in the shelter of the loch meant it was a little midgy on shore, but it meant we got shelter from the breeze meaning we had lovely calm waters to paddle on.

Hamer Canoe, Loch Shieldaig

31-7-16 Hamer (35)

Malcolm, Hannah, Emily and George met me near the Shieldaig Lodge Hotel, just south from Gairloch. The were across from Inverness on a quick holiday. We had a good session, paddling in a bit of wind at times but managing to control the canoes well around the loch. Emily and George completed my balancing tasks well, not even falling off when I got them sitting on the very front of the canoes!

Wilson Kayak, Loch Shieldaig

28-7-16 Wilson (11)

Sandy, Susan, Lucy and Isla met me in the afternoon to enjoy some paddling. We set off in canoes initially, Lucy joining me in my boat and the others paddling another canoe. After some skill learning, games and seal watching we switched over to kayaks. Once we got in the kayaks we learnt paddling skills in them and then played more games.

Murray, Catherine, Cameron, Matthew and Fiona joined me a few yards from their holiday cottage in Badachro. We had some good calm conditions to paddle in, so calm that Cameron decided to throw himself in for a swim! It was a good session, with Cameron and Matthew trying their hardest to get each other as wet as possible.

Wood Kayak, Loch Shieldaig

25-7-16 Wood (57)Iain, Christine, Frazer, Calum and Cara joined me again for a session by the Shieldaig Lodge Hotel. We had paddled together a few years ago, from that experience I guessed it was going to be a very wet session with them! It was, and not just because of the rain! It was a fun session with plenty of games but we also managed to get some good views of seals whilst on the water.
