Climbing: The North East of Scotland is experiencing the wettest summer since I came here and so climbing took place mainly indoors. Apart from that a few evenings repeating routes from previous years with a bolt clipping 6c+ at Kirrie the highlight so far. It is frustrating for many of us here.
Arisaig sea kayaking: I was increasingly fed up with the poor summer and needed an adventure. So Ana and I decided to go sea kayaking in Arisaig, a good place for beginners. I got a Trak T-1600 folding kayak from Ebay and Ana rented a Valley Avocet from http://www.seakayakhighlands.co.uk/ which were very helpful and are recommended. First we were unsure whether to go because of a windy and rainy forecast but an adventure underdose made us pack up the car and drive west. After a rainy night clear skies over the Arisaig bay.
