You can view the details and object here: https://wam.highland.gov.uk/wam/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=neighbourComments&keyVal=PAEMDSIHGAK00 It seems ...

Re: Cuileig River - Lower section

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the top two pictures from the upper section, a little confusing for a guide. Top 2 pics are definitely from the lower section, I took them last week. First is the straight leading to Boyakasha, the second is the last drop in the gorge about 100m before it opens o...

Re: SCA Where's the Water Now Updatable

There's been no WtW maintainer for at least a decade. The original source code has been lost. Does that mean you'll now align the WTW colours with Rainchasers then?!! ;-) Given how mad people got about me giving the rapids on the north esk consistent names, I don't want to see how they'll get over ...

Re: SCA Where's the Water Now Updatable

The North Esk is of particular interest right now as we are trying to move the gauge to one near Edzell, rather than one near the sea, which should be more accurate. So, if you are out on the North Esk, please fill in the report for this gauge: http://apps.sepa.org.uk/waterlevels/?sd=t&lc=371579 Tha...

Re: River Tweed - Peebles to Peel

There is a SEPA gauge in Peebles for the Tweed: http://apps.sepa.org.uk/waterlevels/default.aspx?sd=t&lc=14979 . The team at Where's the Water are trying calibrate it, so if your regularly paddle the river, please fill in a level report form on the Where's the water website http://canoescotland.org/...

Re: River North Esk -Scout Camp to Edzell

The gauge currently used by Where's the Water is near the sea, after several other rivers have joined, so the level is a good indicator, but may not be accurate, especially in cold weather. There is a new gauge here: http://apps.sepa.org.uk/waterlevels/?sd=t&lc=371579 and the SCA team are trying to ...

Re: River Tummel - Loch Tummel to Loch Faskally

PLEASE NOTE: As of May 2017 there is an ongoing dispute with SSE over access to the car parking around this river. The release season is about to begin, however currently there do not appear to be any provisions for recreational paddlers to park at the take out. The picnic site at Loch Faskally will...

Re: How Do Clubs Communicate to it's Members?

Facebook is by far the most successful system I've seen so far. It's easy to use, the majority of people already have it and it has a lot of usability benefits over other methods like: notifications, events for trips, easy recognition of other members, fast response times for questions and showing i...
