The long awaited Argyll Sea Kayak Trail is formally open.
The website is working and there is lots of information for paddlers. You can see the love and care which has gone into this project on each and every page.
It's the PDF downloads which I find really impressive.
Each section is clearly described, there's lots of tidal and safety stuff and you'd expect, and clear maps to help with parking. The 'no trace principles' are emphasised on each page.
If you want to see what I mean, click here and take a look at the Ganavan to Arduaine section (with it's parking issues).
The involvement of local government has restricted this to just one county but it's a still wonderful that this has come to fruition. I've updated the ScottishSeaKayakTrail.com website to include this major development to paddling on the west coast.
Now, may I be allowed to poke a little fun? Folks - you really need to fix your photo horizons. The image on your PaddleArgyll.org.uk homepage is quite alarming!
