I have had a fantastic start to the October half-term as the weather has been simply amazing!

Double rainbows over Strontian, mentoring a local paddler 1:1 in sea kayaking and rosey cheeks on a stunning family canoe adventure.

If you want to gain a new perspective on Lochaber and Ardnamurchan from on the water, then get in touch as I am open throughout the October half-term holiday (subject to weather conditions).

tis weekend I was away to the Sport Scotland National Watersports Centre on Cumbrae for their sea kayak symposiums and a chance to try sea kayak sailing for the first time!

This isn't the greatest video, but it does give an idea as to how shallow the learning curve is withe these rigs.

More details can be found on my blog: https://otter-adventures.co.uk/blog/sea-kayak-sailing-taster-cumbrae/

I'm hoping to put one on order to play with over winter... I'll keep you all updated with progress!

It was quite a surprise yesterday when I found out that Otter Adventures is through to the finals of the Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards as 'Best Newcomer'!

A very big 'thank you' to everyone who voted for me in the lead up to the finals. It's now down to me to 'sell' my business model and delivery to the judges...

Awards dinner at the end of September - I'll let you know how I get on.

The rain is back, but the loch is just a beautiful from inside the waterproofs we lend you on our paddling trips.

Don't let a bit of rain put you off - come and discover a different atmosphere from on the water...

I am very excited to say that Otter Adventures is in the running for 'Best Newcomer' in the Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards 2018!

While this is amazing in itself, I cannot get through to the next stage without your vote...

If you think a small one-man company offering personalised and bespoke slow adventure tours deserves a chance against larger companies, then please take a few minutes to add your vote for me on their website (https://outdoorleisureawards.co.uk/vote/).

It would certainly help other micro-businesses have the confidence to be a part of these award sin future years. And you can vote in all the other categories at the same time.

Some evenings are just perfect!

Not a sound to be heard. Not a thing moving. Just a stunning sunset and some ripples on the water to help forget the pressures of modern life.

Join me on the Southward Equinox Experience (https://otter-adventures.co.uk/equinox) and rediscover your connection with nature.

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

--'Leisure' (1911) William Henry Davies
