NF9071 : Paddling hard to ascend tidal rapid in Loch Blathaisbhal

taken 11 years ago, 3 km from Lochmaddy/Loch Nam Madadh, Na h-Eileanan an Iar, Great Britain

Paddling hard to ascend tidal rapid in Loch Blathaisbhal
Paddling hard to ascend tidal rapid in Loch Blathaisbhal
The Lochs behind Lochmaddy are tidal lagoons, connected by narrow channels. As the ebb tide drains the upper lochs, tidal rapids form, opposing progress by sea kayakers. There are three channels up from Loch Blathaisbhal towards the northwest, of which this was the narrowest, shallowest but least fast-flowing, so with a bit of a struggle we managed to paddle up this one. Had we managed to coincide our trip with the flood, we would have been helped on our way, and could have used to ebb to speed us on the way back.
