Earlier this year, I travelled with two friends up to Knoydart on the North West Coast of Scotland to canoe from Loch Morar to Loch Arkaig finally finishing at Loch Lochy. A journey of almost 40 miles through “Britain’s last wilderness” which would include a gruelling 10 mile portage and finish with a paddle down the river Arkaig to finish at Loch Lochy near Fort William.
We completed the trip in 6 days, staying in Bothies where we could and very basic camping the rest of the time.
Although a considerable extra weight to carry, I always take a camera with me, the photo opportunities in these beautifully wild places are simply endless. Here are some of the shots from this trip, I can't wait until the next one.
