Caledonian Canal

Aug 19, 2023

Planned for September. Encouraged by my Lake District ‘Challenge’, it seems only right that I continue to paddle the places that I wish I had when I first saw them. So, next on bucket-list – The Caledonian Canal. Here we have the newly acquired trolley being tried out on my old grey seal. After the relatively short portages in Cumbria, and a check on a website about paddling the Caledonian, and seeing that there are two 600 metre portages and others….. with camping gear? – Definitely wheels! Maybe even a donkey to pull for me? Paddling West to East with a target of 5 days to include the silly bits each end, just to be purist about it. Coast to coast.
