Blair joined me on a breezy morning to explore by kayak rather than on foot for a change on his holiday.
Rachel, Ailsa, Rowan and Tierney are often up in this area visiting granny, this time they wanted to have some fun on the water. We had some fantastic conditions with blue skies and calm seas to explore with.
Liz, Louis and Isabella met me in Poolewe for a morning exploring the coastline on Liz’s birthday. Not a bad way to celebrate a notable birthday!
Emelie, Graeme, Finlay and Eilidh met me on a damp afternoon in Gairloch, the greyness and dampness didn’t dampen their spirits and we had a great time paddling around the craggy coastline.
Lynne and Cameron joined me in a smaller group than planned due to a does of chicken pox, the missing family members didn’t stop us having fun as we splashed around the coastline.
Tom, Andrew and Iain joined me for their 8th time on the water. Today we chose to paddle from Poolewe to Aultbea, this meant the lads had less time to splash about in the water but Andrew did find a bit of time just at the end to go for a swim. Probably the longest period I’ve seen them in a kayak without jumping out for a long time! Dolphins swam by as we had our brew on a remote beach – not a bad afternoon.
Andy, Elurs and Jack joined me for a kayak from Poolewe. We had a nice bit of sunshine and warmth as we explored the craggy coastline and little islands.
Second day in a row for Pat, Cathy and Callan. Today we explored the rugged coastlines nooks crannies and caves.
Martijn, Esther, Daniel, Sophie and Sarah met me in Mellon Charles for a great paddle around the rugged coastline. Quite different scenery to their normal surrondings in the Netherlands!
Pat, Cathy and Callan joined me again for their third session with me. We’d paddled from Badachro and Poolewe in the past so this time we headed around the coastline from Gairloch.
Paul, Jemima, Kirsten, Alix and Rory joined me for their seventh session on the water. They’re always keen to have a ‘wet’ session and test balance skills on the kayaks.
Nicola and Josh joined me to explore the craggy coastline in front of the holiday home they were staying in. As we pottered around we watched a couple of otters frolicking in front of us.
Laura, Ted, Will and Michelle joined me for a fun session exploring the craggy coastline around kerry bay. Ted and Will both took dips in the sea, always good to practice capsizing!
Nick, Rhona, Erin and Ross have paddled with me from Mellon Charles and Poolewe in the past, this time we set off from Gairloch to explore the coastline there.
James joined me for a second day in a row, this time to explore the islands of Loch Maree. The stunning scenery around the islands is always nice to be about.
James last paddled with me around the Isle of Ewe, we’ve had some trips planned since then but the wind had different ideas. Today the wind let us out for a morning paddle to explore the Inverewe coastline.
Jane and Davide spent the afternoon with me paddling around the coastline. We made it all the way around to Slaggan bay and had a stretch of the legs and a brew on the beach there.
Callum, Ryan, Louis, Matt and George all met me at the boom beach in Mellon Charles for a paddle in the sea kayaks. We paddled around the craggy coastline and around to Camas an Fheidh for a brew on the beach.
