Middle Findhorn (in spate)

Well, after an aborted trip to the Upper Findhorn given it was MASSIVE and in spate, Jo Young, Stewart Young and myself decided to take a wee bimble down the Middle Findhorn.

Yes, we’ve done it before, but today was different given the all-but flood levels. It was much higher than I’ve paddled it before, with only one brick showing at Logie Bridge. While many of the normal features were simply washed out, they pace of the river was extremely fast, there were few eddies and a fair few ‘new’ stoppers thrown in our way…mostly hidden and quite unexpected!

No real incidents. Stewart rolled a couple of times and sawn at Carnage, while Jo and I only had a few wobbles…but it was extremely pushy, so no lost kudos for Stew-pot!
