Hebrides SOT

Post by mduncombe » Mon Aug 09, 2010 3:05 pm

I'm off to Mull, Harris and Lewis in September for a walking holiday, is it worth me taking my sit on top or is this part of the world best left to a proper sea kayak?

There's plenty of sheltered water, if that's what you need. All depends on the weather really.

Cheers,

Tom.

You can always find some sheltered paddling in those areas. Take it - you'll reget it if you don't.
