I have tried to live in Scotland varies times, but it has broken me, I have figured Scotland is best served on Holiday, and on paddling holidays… There is no better place.
Every October I make a pilgrimage to Scotland, to paddle….There is no plan, although where there is less rain is probably the best plan…..
Last October and friend I drove to Fort William, had a look at the weather and made a plan…..
The plan that we hatched was to drive to Glenuig and go from there, we knew there was a bunk house there, so off we went. The plan was to paddle (SUP) to the bothy opposite and then to bunk at the bunk house.
So off we set to the bothy, the currents were pretty rad and strong, but we made it. The Peanmeanach Bothy was an old fishing community that had been abandoned. A great location for a stay over night, and a possibility to venture further up the coast, but as we had the thought of the Glenuig bunk house to sleep in, next to a pub, so we paddled back .
Imagine our disappointment when we were asked to pay 30pounds each for the privilege of staying the bunkhouse….plan aborted and onto find somewhere less expensive, and more wild.
