Threading the Eye of the Needle

The first weekend following the easing of lockdown restrictions and an opportunity for a sea kayaking journey following months of travel restrictions.

The campsite at Applecross was beckoning and with a pitch booked, the sea kayaks of the roof of the van and the camera equipment at the ready, we were ready for a much anticipated trip away. Even the weather forecast and the tides seemed to be in our favour…

A Sea Kayaking Journey around Troup Head

We'd paddled around Troup Head a few years ago and, given the weather and the conditions, it made perfect sense to repeat the paddle, particularly as it was a great time to see the birdlife. Troup Head is an RSPB Reserve and a spectacular setting for the largest mainland gannet colony in Scotland.

A sea kayaking exploration of the Sutherland coastline

Launching from Clachnessie beach, the idea was to paddle across to Eilean Chrona and from there, tuck round the north side of Oldany Island and then to Culkein Drumbeg. From there, the possibilities were to carry on for a while or to return through the channel on the south side of Oldany Island and back to Clashnessie beach.

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 superb viewpoint from Beinn Enaiglair

A day out on the hills, just after New Year. Beinn Enaiglair sits just above Braemore Junction between the Fannaichs and Beinn Dearg.

From a golden sunrise through to long distance views to the surrounding snow capped peaks, this was a great day out. It was hard going on the way up as the snow crust frequently gave way underfoot, but the views from the top more than made up for the effort.
