A beautiful paddle today with a family of 5 on holiday from Germany. The water was so calm that we were able to travel a good distance. We visited the islands of Inchtavannach where we saw deer and Highland cows, Inchmoan, where we found deer tracks along the water’s edge and explored a ruined building, and Inchconnachan, where some of us went looking for more wildlife while others made tea and skimmed stones.
Yesterday we were on day 3 of an extended programme. This time we were on Loch Lomond looking at Teamwork, Communication, and skills. The Loch was extremely calm and as the trees are beginning to turn quite beautiful
During this summer we have some fantastic wild camps available. On these camps you will learn how to Navigate using natural indicators, Find and filtrate water, Fire from friction and spark. You can also choose to build and sleep in your survival shelter after cooking a warm meal over an open fire. These fantastic experiences are also available with Canoeing so we may even be able to have a night paddle looking for wildlife.
Summer is a fantastic time to go on a Loch Lomond Canoe safari and explore the volcanic Islands. Last week we were extremely lucky to spot two fallow deer near the shore, this was made possible by the use of our Open canoes as we could silently drift along. loch Lomond is a wonderful place to visit and you will be surprised at all the hidden places we visit.
