Sun, Rain, Midges and no Wind

Last weekend we went to Skye for a 2 day paddle with an American/German couple (living in Germany). The weather forecast for the weekend was superb for paddling with very little wind and some sunshine most of Saturday. However, it was suppose to get more overcast in the evening and then rain. Naturally this means that it perfect for midges. They were out with a vengeance and even going behind the bushes was only possible with a midge hood.

Never mind the wee beasties. The paddling was fantastic. We spotted some harbour seal near Kyle and paddled then up to the Kishorn Islands and then all the way back to Uags bothy. We certainly made the most of the good weather on Saturday and had a good enjoyable BBQ at the bothy. The next day we paddled back to Kyleakin and had a nice lunch after we packed away all the kit.
