No walking involved, but this was a nice wee change for us! :D 14km paddle along the River Tay in 3.25hrs, mostly calm with a few short faster flows but good practice... not sure we're quite ready for the white waters yet; happy to stick with this section for now :think: :lol:

Drove up to Ballinluig; good launch spot with parking just after the roundabout

Calm waters most of the way

Forgot the sun cream again, doh! (legs were really burnt!)

Best way to keep a social distance - stopped for a snack on an island :)

Nearing our end point, with the fastest water up ahead (Scoob was gutted that he'd actually switched recording off when 'filming' this section!)

Through the bridge (whee!), keeping to the right
