After a few day's off from kayaking & with work to do back in Cardiff I had to decide wether to return home or continue with my adventure?
Well, what would you do?
After scanning the map & the sea kayak guide book & a bit of scheming I decided to head to Armadale & get the ferry across to Mallaig as there was an amazing spot that I know but have never kayaked.
Time to tick another dream destination off my wish list :)

I did say it was an amazing spot. Traigh Beach near to Arisaig, there's a paddle in the guidebook but I'm gonna do it a little different. It'll take longer to reach the Skerries at Loch Nan Ceall from my launch point but my journey will be all the more wonderful for it.
That's Eigg you can see in the far distance.
Not the best footage & certainly not up to the gratuitous Beaver shot in 'basic instinct' but it really made my day none the less.
What you cant see is the huge fish almost as big as the beaver that the beaver dragged up onto the skerry to eat & all the time there was a curious harbor seal watching behind me.
This place is friggin awesome!
|Quick Pee On A Skerry...|
It was a little bouncier on the West side of the Skerries.
And wonderfully calm on the East side though the South Easterly wind was quite brisk.

If there wasn't a chill in the air you'd be forgiven for thinking this was the Caribbean.
Heading back through the maze of skerries, in fact with the wind strongly on my back I just popped the skeg down & gently drifted my way through trying to get a good shot of the numerous harbor Seals. Put it this way, I'm gonna get a new camera, bloody shit focusing when zoomed :(
Back at Traigh Beach & looking forward to a cuppa.
Hi mate, check out the new Nikon AW100 waterproof digital camera. Looks a nice bit of kit with some decent reveiws. Im hoping Santa brings me one.ReplyDelete
Already checked it out Scott, looks like a contender.ReplyDelete
Just watched the beaver footage LOL, at low res you can barely see it PMSL, maybe just take my word for it :)
Beavers are vegetarian - they don't eat fish!
Must of been a Quorn Fish ;DReplyDelete
Getting my words mixed up :O Try Otter :)ReplyDelete
