Paddlers find Skye at rainbow’s end

Paddlers find Skye at rainbow’s end

DEVERON Canoe Club explored the picturesque coast of Skye during its latest sea-kayaking trip.

Eight members of the club – Alan Meikle, Andy Robertson, Charlie Clark, Fiona Nairn, Iain Brook- er, Lorna Taylor, Shirley Gordon and Tony Jannetta – spent almost three days taking in the sights and sounds of the coastline.

On the first day, the group visited Broadford Bay and the sound between Scalpay and Skye, navigat- ing relatively sheltered waters. The day ended with them circumnavigating Guillaman Island, finishing off at Broadford Pier.

The second day saw wilder conditions for the group and they headed for Portree Bay, which was more sheltered.

On the final day, conditions improved and the group pushed up Loch Scavaig from Elgol to com- plete the trip.

The club has around 50 members and would welcome anyone who is interested in taking up the sport.
