Kayaking Islay and Jura

A couple of weeks ago, we grabbed a few days in the campervan on Islay, taking with us one of the new Valley Etain kayaks. We did a day-paddle in the south east corner of the island, among some fabulous rocks and islands. More details at SeaKayakRoutes.com.

However, the highlight was a two-day paddle, first to the northern top of Islay, and then across to Jura travelling deep into Loch Tarbert which almost cuts the island in half.

Making full use of the tide allowed us to complete this easily in two days. At one stage I was travelling down the Sound of Islay at 21kph! Again, details at SeaKayakRoutes.com.
