Somebody said there were four seasons in one hour and they were not joking as we had the lot. Rain, sun, dead calm and strong winds were all part of the mix and best not to mention the midges! For us the most testing day was a 20 mile paddle against force 3/4 winds and waves on Loch Ness but we were rewarded with a good camp site and no problem getting to sleep.
I went with a different Kevin this trip who turned out to be a great paddle partner! 1320 miles of driving, 5 nights of wild camping and 60 miles of paddling turned into a pretty good adventure. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone that does not mind a bit of discomfort. Marvelous scenery, friendly locals and a real sense of camaraderie among the fellow paddlers that we met along the way. I have a feeling that it wont be too long before I will be heading to the far North again.
