Loch Sheil

A select three Allan, Colin M & Paul braved the driech weather. But it wasn't too bad as the rain held off while we paddled around the head of Loch Shiel. We launched at Slattach Pier. Just as well we didn't go for launching at the old boat shed on the river Callop as we later found that the channel was blocked by fallen alder. The loch was mirror smooth and we explored first the Callop then the Finnan - managed as far as under the road bridge before the rough stuff started. Then we headed down the loch to the fish farm and the small beach behind it. Paddled back in the gathering gloom, the nights are gathering in ! And then packed up without being too bothered by the midges because of a slight breeze.
