Because it's There

A record number of people cimbed Mt Everest this season. 514 so far and there are still teams on the mountain. It's getting as busy as a Munro!

Reading this reminded me why I enjoy sea kayaking. After my first trip into Loch Scavaig with Gordon Brown of Skyak Adventures I wrote this for The Herald.

"It feels like hill-walking as it used to be, before Munro bagging reached epidemic proportions. There's that long-lost sensation of humility in the face of powerful natural forces. Overnight camps return to being special times in isolated places. Best of all, you never follow a well-worn trail. No one ever left a footprint on a wave."
