4th July Club Trip Oich and Garry

 Last Saturday saw a record 10 folk set off down the River Oich on a Nevis Canoe Club trip.  Lindsay, Cat, Seonaid, Andrew, Bridget, Kate, Jacob, Colin, Martin and Simon all launched into the canal and paddled to the top of the river at the outflow from Loch Oich.  Initially excitement was provided by the weir at the start of the river.  Successfully negotiated by all it was time to tackle the riffles and rapids of the river.  One small mishap, and a couple of hours later saw us arrive in Loch Ness.

After a sumptuous afternoon tea at the Invergarry House Hotel, Ali joined the group for a run down the River Garry.  Whilst some of the group chose the scenic route along the bank, others decided to swim the river, with the remaining group members deciding to stay in their boats - a true multisport day!
