hi guys I've not been on here for a long time but i need your help. i am trying to find somewhere i can Canoe and then camp for a few days, what i'd really like is a lake or loch with islands i can camp on, could anyone recommend anywhere in the uk?
Yep loch sheil nice, loch awe also good and indeed loch etive. If you go a little further north west though you have some right gems, loch morar, loch maree to name a couple if you are not looking at trekking too far north, loch lomond is good with plenty of islands, but I would only recommend going there through the colder months as this deters the masses of neds you will come across (summer can be busy on lomond)..
Beaton midge jacket, keeps the buggers at bay, although hardly a fashion accessory Lots of people swear by Avon skin so soft and smidge, I have tried both with smidge being ok. Your better off just making sure you set up camp where there's a breeze midges don't like the wind.
