I had a great day out with Rebecca and Ben from Australia last Monday. It was fearfully cold and we had to cope with strong winds, but they were determined to make the islands – ‘Wallaby’ island in particular. After leaving from Lodge on Loch Lomond we had a hard paddle down the coast towards Ardlui allowing us space for drift on our crossing to Inch Tavannach. (Congratulations R&B on your canoe handling!)
After climbing Tom-na-clagg and admiring the view to the south we had lunch on the sheltered north beach. We then entered the narrows and set foot on Inch Connachan. It seems ironic that Rebecca and Ben would travel all the way to Scotland to just to see wallabies when they have plenty of them on their doorstep, almost literally!
Did they see any? Well that’s a secret between them and me! The one thing that I can say was special for Ben was to experience his first snow shower:)
