Thanks folks for the kind comments. Always pleased to host visitors from "across the pond". I've paddled over in the Inner Hebrides and and have very fond memories of my trip there.

This was probably the highlight of our whole trip out east, it was amazing. We did the half day tour, our instructor was Jaime and she was great, knew her stuff and also encouraged us. We covered a lot of ground for a half day...More
