On the 28th July myself and five other fellow canoeists met in Port Appin with the intention to circumnavigate Lismore, which is an island slightly north west of Oban. After packing our boats in Port Appin, which was heaving with visitors in their crispy clean outdoor gear, we set o
We’re meeting at 9.30 on Saturday at the sea kayakers’ car park Clive wrote in his email as trip organiser. Easier said than done when working until 6pm Friday. Still, my sleep in the back of the car at Arrochar was more comfortable than the following night!
Ten of us met up at the car park in front of the closed Travellers Rest pub, though not before some awkward manoeuvring into the limited space available. Before setting off I took the opportunity to explain the current well-advanced plans to buy and re-open the Travellers as a community pub. A

Looking through some holiday photos from earlier in the year on a recent wet day made me think how lucky we were back in March to go on a couple of HF Holiday walking breaks just before lockdown.
Patrick organised two groups on the day the walking programme re-started after Lockdown 2.
These curious sheep greeted Yvonne and I at the end of a fine autumn day’s recce of my Barningham Moor walk. Got to grab the fine days when they come along!
