While it is true the chain of Islands that make up the Outer Hebrides share some fairly obvious commons features, it is amazing the different character available on each. My latest trip took me out to Great Bernera which until 1953 was only accessible by boat.
The paddle itself took in a calm sea loch and then some open but sheltered sea.
I couldn’t believe how clear the water was and how full of life the bottom was. Perhaps my favourite part of the trip was seeing the tiny orange star fish that lined the bank of the sea loch.
During our time in the sea loch we also saw otters and a Slavonian Grebe.
Mike managed to get a little bit of film footage of the trip…
Conditions changed slightly in the open water and as the sun came down the paddling was simply magical!
