Tonight's final episode is cycling the north coast (which may be of interest to seayakers)

Excellent timing Mike!
At 13:30 is the turning point (around the bridge) for the Forth classic WWR, the start/finish is pretty much at the bridge (M9) at 13:53 (it's about 3km round trip).
At 16:10 is the lead in to the wee rapid we use for the WWR sprint course if the river is high enough to run it, otherwise we run the sprint on the bit at 16:10.
This year's race is this Sunday, classic start I think is 1030, sprint runs in the afternoon. All kinds of boats and paddlers welcome, a shorter classic course can be arranged for kids or short boats if people want that.
Drive through the VOSA checkpoint and there is a car park on the right next to the river. There will most likely be paddlers there a couple of hours before the start getting ready, warming up and maybe practising.

Looks like the guys last camp was just across from the car park.

Well those are all delightful, thanks for the links. :-)

I liked the music, so had a look to see who "Beluga Lagoon" are, and it's them. They have a lot of music vids and wotnot on youtube, and various other films that get more and more professional and polished as they go on (without losing any of their charm).

I might be a bit late to the party, but for anyone who hasn't seen the films they made before that pilot was accepted by the BBC these are well worth a go..

"Sullivan's Wild Scotland: Rivers"



And "Sullivan's Wild Scotland: The Coast"
