Open Canoe Safari – Loch Lomond

The first safari of 2016 took place on the 9th of April and it didn’t fail to live up to expectations; wonderful scenery, wildlife and heritage. Simon and Mairead chose to enjoy a short spring break incorporating a heritage and nature canoe safari on Loch lomond.

One of the advantages of visiting Inchconnachan early in the season is seeing the magnificent blossom on the magnolia tree.

Identifying some wallaby spoor we knew there was still a chance of seeing one. Creeping steadily through the undergrowth we saw something moving, which turned out to be a roe deer. A little further on we were rewarded with a clear view of one of the islands red necked wallabies.

After our trek we circumnavigated Inchtavannach, visiting ‘Little Peter’ en route.

My thanks to Simon and Mired for a wonderful start to the season.

Canoeing on Loch Lomond

It was an early meet on Friday with Laurel and Skye from Utah. Which meant we had the Loch to ourselves – at least for a while. Drifting down the coast with the rising sun warming us gently, we crossed over to the island,Inch Tavannach and climbed Bell Hill. Later, we paddled on to Inch Connachan in search of the elusive Scottish Red Throated Wallabies before completing the circumnavigation of Inch Tavannach and returning to Luss. Thanks for a great trip ladies. It was great being with you.
