This week on the Blogger Network, Ian Johnston at Mountain and Sea Scotland goes for a paddle on Loch Maree.
We added a few new blogs to the Blogger Network this week, and one of them was Mountain and Sea Scotland. Ian Johnston blogs about writes about hillwalking, sea kayaking and rural subjects – plus the odd gear review – and is based near Alford in NE Scotland.
In his latest post, Ian tells a simple but lovely story of paddling out to an island which contains its own loch, which itself has its own island:
What makes this an unusual place is that here on a loch there’s an island, which itself has a loch with an island in it! I don’t know of any other place in Scotland where this can be found. Eilean Subhainn is the second largest freshwater loch island in Scotland, only Inchmurrin on Loch Lomond is bigger.
