Trossachs – Viking route Day2- More?

Dec 13, 2023

After a quick hot chocolate at Tarbet, I judged that there might just be enough daylight to tick off Loch Arklet. So, a very long bumpy route around the south of Lomond got me back up to the Loch Arklet dam. Stashed the car and launched Seal. Didn’t take the camera with me which was a real mistake. The most beautiful and tranquil loch I have paddled, then or since. Stunning. Shame it is so short! Getting out was a tricky rock and bramble climb in the dusk. Walked a mile then a lovely family in a landrover stopped to offer me a lift. Retrieved car, then retrieved Seal and down to the nearest village for an awful night at the local inn. Much like a bad hostel!
