    Knoydart - walking and a little packrafting. Pic heavy...

    Knoydart April 2014 With just 4 days spare for this trip it was important to get an early start from the Midlands. Up at 2.30 am :( Arriving at Fort William at 10 am (after a 7 hour drive) is always a relief. The drive onward from Glasgow is really the start of the trip though. I love that...

    Loch Ard Canoeing

    With a High Avalanche forecast and fresh snow, rather than winter climb, I decided to nip up to Loch Ard. A lovely flat calm and quiet loch, was a great way to spend a few hours. My Tarp was used in case of any rain but none came in. Very hard to get a kelly kettle going with wet kindling...
