Scotland Happened – a new kayaking short film

Just came across this new short film featuring some great Scottish runs. Thought I’d share it as, filming and production wise, it’s definately one of the best ones out their featuring Caledonian capers!

Also, it seems to be in the runing for a short film award, so if you like it, why not vote for it?! More info here:

On a personal note, I’m off to the Garry tomorrow after work for some playtime action…the sun is here, temps are hitting 23 degrees across much of Scotland, so it must be time for dusting down the playboat! Good times…

Nollaig Chridheil agus Bliadhna Mhath Ùr dhuibh uile / Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone :)

Hoping to get some paddling in over the holidays given the warm(ish) weather and snow melt – but first, I have to demolish some more Christmas pud!!

Hurricane ‘Bawbag’

A typically-named Scottish ‘hurricane’ named Bawbag – in other words, fairly strong winds which the media, as ever, have over-hyped - has brought lots of rain and combined with a load of snow melt.

Where’s the Water shows all the main rivers in Scotland to be running, many pumping…once I’ve got my neck seal gaffer taped, I’m hoping for a weekend of excellent paddling!
