Loch Creran


A bad weather forecast forced a change of plans from our planned paddle from Port Appin. Instead, a group of us spent a few hours playing on the ebbing tide near Creagan Bridge on Loch Creran. There’s a small tide race that forms here on the ebb and we caught it an hour before slack water – surfed some small waves back towards the bridge and spent some time practising turns in the race and also paddling across on the beam sea. The flood is also good for practicing ferry gliding under the bridge.

After 3 hours, some rolling and rescue practice, and as the cold gnawed away, we retired to the recently re-opened Creagan Inn. Hot chocolate, beer, coffee, chips and making plans for Summer…  but not all at once.
