A paddle on Loch Eck was well overdue,roughly 7 months was the last time I paddled here. With a new vehicle sourced and a roof rack fitted last weekend,there was no holding me back ( well work and weather permitting,ha).
Loch Eck it was !!! Loaded up after work and took the 20 minute drive north of Dunoon. Loch Eck has a number of possible launch points and there’s usually at least one that’s sheltered from the worst of any wind. I chose to launch at the north end of the Loch at Dornoch Bay. With no set plans I decided to paddle south to Jubilee Point then cross the Loch and return on the west side passing the ruin of Stuck Farmhouse.
In the short time I had on the water I think I spent more time taking photos than I did paddling ,but in the conditions it’d have been rude not to.
