Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

Catching up on 2018 -Scotland in May

Several weeks had me mainly southbound from Arisaig to Bute via the Small Isles

 continued below
Fair and settled weather meant open crossing were no problem and I was able to play around the Garvellachs, Grey Dogs and Corryvreckan. My plan was to take in the Mull of Kintyre but deteriorating weather and named storm 'Hector' forced the viking option of portage at Tarbert. Then the not so sheltered waters off Bute led me to the safe option of paddling via the Kyles and catching the ferry rather than a paddle across the Clyde. I had hoped to return via Ailsa Craig -next time?
