Re: Meig Gorge Trees

Edinburgh Kayak Club were at the Meig this weekend, not having checked this bit of the forum first (always good to check these things when you get back!) and managed to spot the tree below the weir rapid while scouting the rapid. We weren't as brave as Chris and didn't fancy trying to get round the ...

Re: Grave concerns over SCA GM

Apologies if this re-iterates any previous stuff - I haven't posted on the riversguide forum for ages and don't have time to plough back through all the bickering, but this issue is very important and I would like to throw in my tuppence worth even though it looks pretty certain to result in my char...

Coquet below Rothbury

Just returned from a family (non-paddling) trip to Rothbury and noticed a nice looking rapid on the Coquet about half a mile downstream of the town by an old watermill. At what I guess was a mid level (the stepping stones in Rothbury were about 3 inches under water) this looked like a long grade III...

The Mouse definately used to go, but last report I had of it several years ago was that it was getting choked with trees. There has also been a small hydro built on it in the last few years, but I think it's been paddled since. I think it's Grade III/IV and needs a bit of water so won't be running t...

Wanted Eskimo Topo Duo

<r>Just wondering whether anyone has a Topo Duo which they no longer want, as my kids are now at ages where the Duo is ideal for them. Getting one of my own would take pressure off the club one. I'm based in Biggar between Edinburgh and Glasgow, but will be heading south in a couple of weeks for hol...

Photos of the Annan

<r>I'm putting together a poster at work for a conference, and am looking for a photo of the Annan which I could include on it. There aren't any in the SEPA picture library, and I as it is a paddlable river, I was wondering whether anyone out there had a picture I could use (obviously I would acknow...

SEPA Gauge data

In case anyone's wondering what's happened to the SEPA gauge data in the SEPA website and also as it feeds into wheresthewater, I have asked my colleagues in SEPA hydrology and apparently there's a problem downloading the gauges to the SEPA network and so on to the web at present. This is being look...

Just hear this news from John Picken. Very sad. Andy had an enormous impact on Scottish white water paddling in the last few years through his work as SCA Access Officer and the White Water Guidebooks. Irreplaceable
