The first day of the new season proved to be ideal, with little wind and even a glimpse of warming sun. It was Kimbrley’s ‘Hen’ weekend organised by her pals and trip on the Loch was just one of the many happy events planned.

After following the marked trail to the top of the island we were rewarded with wonderful views of the Loch. We then descended towards the east of the island and visited the ancient churchyard where several local clan chiefs are buried.

Making our way back to Port Bawn, we paddled south ending up where we started, well relaxed and appreciative of the peaceful setting.
