A Quick West Coast Blast

claire etive

I have just got back from a quick 4 day paddling trip on the West Coast of Scotland.  Unlike most times I’ve been there usualy at New Year, we had lots of water, quite good weather, lots of light and it was quite warm.  September is definately the best time to go.

We got 7 river done in all including some ones that I’ve never done including the Blackwater, Morriston, Coe and Gloy.  We also did some of the classics such as high water runs on the Roy, a Chunky Etive and an awsome run on the Orchy. Here are a few of the best picture I managed to take:
