Another loch in the lovely Trossochs area, we were there while the leaves were turning which added a different feel to the paddle. There are rapids leading into a waterfall at the eastern end and a picturesque little boat shed. The loch was relatively quiet which may have been due to the time of year and also that it was during the week that we went however having gone passed a few times there never seems to be crowds of people in this quiet corner of the Trossochs.
Stay tuned, next week when we are back on the Forth and Clyde Canal at Lambhill, Scotland. Do you have a favourite SUP location that you think should be added here? Contact us on the ‘Contact’ tab and we’ll include it in a later post.
