A peaceful paddle into lonely Loch Teacuis

Staying at Resipole campsite this Easter provided Tania and me with an opportunity to explore Loch Sunart and the surrounding area. Meeting up with Steve that week, we decided that a trip into Loch Teacuis was in order.

I lived on the Morvern Peninsula some 30 years ago and had always wanted to approach Loch Teacuis and Barr by sea. This was the perfect opportunity - the weather was settled and the day was looking good..

A Sea Kayaking Journey around Tarbat Ness

There always seems to be one January weekend each year with clear skies and glorious sunshine, often associated with mists and inversions. For 2017, the 21st January was just such a day on such a weekend. We were itching to get out in the sea kayaks again and the forecast for the weekend was looking great.

Tania and I had a few days on Skye and and the conditions were looking perfect for a paddle from Kylerhea to Sandaig and back again.... The forecast was settled, the tides were in our favour and we had the company of a couple of other paddlers - George from Greece and Roar from Norway.

Arisaig Sea Kayaking

A few days in Arisaig and an opportunity to use our kayaks to explore the surrounding area and the wonderful coastline. With paddling trips to the Arisaig skerries, to Koydart and taking some time to chill and to enjoy time together, this was quality time. Making use of capable boats, great weather and the urge to explore, we toured the area and found our way into some beautiful nooks and crannies along the coastline.
