Splashing Scotland adventure for Perse paddlers

Perse Paddlesport Club members travelled to the Great Glen in Scotland for a canoeing adventure.

Twelve students paddled the route of the Caledonian Canal from Fort William to Fort Augustus, taking in all the large lochs, including the famous Loch Ness on the final day.

To maximise the experience, pupils also chose to ‘wild camp’ en route. The shores of both Loch Lochy and Loch Oich provided the team with some stunning evening vistas and a truly remote experience.

As well as the beautiful scenery, there were some challenges for the group too, including an abundance of wind, rain and midges!

Outdoor pursuits instructor Keiron Taylor was incredibly impressed with how students stood up to these challenges.

He said: “Students really supported each other and worked hard to keep spirits high throughout the trip. It was a very positive experience for everyone.”
