Trossachs – Viking route Day2

Dec 5, 2023

Having researched the route a week earlier and finding that the ferries on Loch Lomond were not running now for winter, so no ferry to and from Inversnaid on the east bank, I had brought with me an old MI380 kayak. I towed the bugger over to Inversnaid, arriving in a very nasty fast wind driven ‘chop’. Stashed the 380, wheels on Seal and hauled it up (VERY UP) the mountain (hill really but it felt like a mountain) – how the hell did the Vikings get up that with a sea boat?!! 150metres. Finally arrived at Loch Arklet dam and stashed Seal. Walked back to Inversnaid and paddled the 380 back to Tarbet to collect the car. Arrived back at 1500.
