Loch Affric Paddle

So, we've purchased a little canoe trolley to make access to lochs and rivers a bit further away from where we park the car, just a little bit easier...

We parked up in the Forestry Commission car park at the far end of the public road in Glen Affric (NH201233) before loading up the canoe with the days provisions. With our slightly oddly shaped wheelbarrow, we continued west along the track until we found a good place to get down to the river...

...and off we paddled - a day to explore Loch Affric.

Setting off from Glen Feshie - it was chilly - before the sun had a chance to peep over the hills...  Off we go! Jim - Setting off near Auch...
