Scotland River Tripping Week – 11thto 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 linkfor details of the previous year's week in Scotland (hopefully
it will rain this year!)
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.
