    Default yup

    I'm free for three days over this weekend until Monday. I was thinking about bivouac'ing on the islands in Loch Lomond near the Luss side if you are interested?
    Expand your mind there's plenty space for it...

    I think I might head out onto Loch Lomond this Sunday. Probably from the Ardlochy side near Luss. Mind you, it is going to be blowy...

    Can't do the Saturday as I am doing Magic at the local RSPB reserve. Sunday is a possibility though. Might have the girls with me.

    If the weather is foul I might just play in the local Loch. If not then I am open to suggestions. If I have the girls though it will need to be relatively close as they are not ones to travel far without getting grumpy

    If you are serious it might be worth starting a new thread so as not to confuse.

    Saturday is not good for me I am afraid. I might be able to make a Sunday paddle but will not know for sure till late Saturday so there is no point anyone making plans round me.

    Nick, we'd join you, but Loch Lomond is a bit too big and open for our first paddle in our new canoe! Feel free to join us on Loch Ard, but it may be too much of a slow, easy paddle for you.

    Still waiting to paddle. My brother will go out after golfing.

    May meet up tomorrow. Bit windy. You two will be faster than me since you will be tandem.
