Paddle out of St Andews, turn right and keep truning right utill we are back home!
After leaving St Andrews, we headed down the East coast to Edinburgh. From there we kayaked along the Union canal to Glasgow. Then the trip really began. Named in the top 10 world sea kayaking destinations, the West Coast of Scotland provided the first serious challenge of the trip. We traveled past one of the largest whirlpools in the world, encountered racing tidal streams and an array of wonderful wildlife. We hope to made it to Ullapool to end the first segment of the trip.
With university graduation and a club Alps trip giving us a break at the end of June, we returned and tackled the finale of the West and mighty North Coast of Scotland. Cape Wrath threw huge swell and limited landing spots before flying through the Pentland.
Once round the North Coast, I had a solo sprint down the East coast encountering dolphins ospreys and friendly barmen before running aground on St Andrews Beach where I launched 35 paddling days ago.
