Day trip on Loch Creran and Lismore - 5-11-11

A Glasgow Kayak Club day out to Loch Creran and Castle Stalker and back again via Lismore was planned by Muir and Andy at the beginning of November, and along with Dick Parsons and Emily Glasbey, we had a cracking day out on smooth water.
The end of the trip was glorified by a stunning sunset over the Morvin Hills.

Weekend at Rowerdenan Lodge - 29/30-10-11

A GREAT weekend was spent with Alan and some of his SCA (Scottish Canoe Association) chums at a lodge on the banks of Loch Lomond at Rowerdenan.
A spot of fancy dress was had on the first night with a tremendous meal of Haggis and neeps and tatties after souper soup washed down with even superer Chivas Regal whisky.
Sunday saw a paddle down the loch  and through the Narrows with a wee visit to Lady Colquhoun's summer lodge, and back.
