Scotland River Tripping Week – 11th to 18th February

 

In addition to the usual weekend river trips, after a year off I am again running a week long trip up to Scotland.

The dates are Sat 11th - Sat 18th February - as this is a gap in the pool sessions and I understand that it is half term - (although I have no knowledge of such things)

What we'll be doing is running a week of river trips and a bit of coaching for people on grade 2/3 river trips, so you need to be happy on that water. Who knows if people are up for it maybe running the odd grade 4 (possibly even the right way up) by the end of the week. You also need suitable warm kit as in previous years there has been some sub-zero paddling!

See the this link for details of the previous year's week in Scotland (hopefully it will rain this year!)

Accommodation:

I intend that we’ll stay at Invercoe near Fort William again which is fairly well positioned for many paddling options, although we may have to drive a bit to get to rivers with water.

We have hired the self-catering lodges / cottages here before which works well. The cost for accommodation should work out in region of £90 - £110 depending on whether we completely fill them.

On top of that there is obviously sharing the cost of food and transport – in the past each house has sorted food together and people have teamed up for transport to save taking more cars than we need and keep the costs down.

If you are interested speak to me asasp 01484 854099 or email
