Knoydart: the weather gods were kind


A gathering of Natural Change participants and facilitators took me to Inverie on Knoydart for a week recently. Knoydart is a peninsula in North West Scotland that is only accessible by sea – or on foot over the mountains.


Introduced me to sleeping out in a bivvy bag under a tarp. Will be taking these on my voyages in Scratch in the future.


Had a chat with a couple who arrived from Tarbert by open canoe and camped at Inverie. The campsite is between the fence and the sea.


As we were leaving by ferry the next day we saw them making for their haul out just around this headland.


The weather forecast had been for heavy rain most of the time; but the weather gods were kind to us.


Skye is probably further than it looks. But in the right conditions… Must come back here with Scratch some time.


Wonderful event, wonderful people, wonderful place.
