Kyle Akin

Astonishingly (for us) we were on the water and paddling at 5am. The wind died to nothing and, on the north going tide, we made fast progress. Crossing Loch Hourn was easier than Loch Nevis. Hell better than Heaven on this occasion.

We had to wait for the tide in Kyle Rhea. A two hour hike to the brocks in Glenelg was good but doing it in wellies left me with blisters on both heels. Lunch was again to be our main meal of the day.

3.15pm and the tide carried us through Kyle Rhea and to Kyleakin. Tomorrow's forecast is not good and the next 24hours even worse. We're trying to decide what to do.

Sounds like fun I'm writing a blog about kayaking too so when I searched for stories of other kayakers I ended up here
