Outdoor Activities in Ardnamurchan

Bog Orchid

It is proven Outdoor Activity is good for Health & Strength. To build intellectual capacity through interesting and challenging practical experiences, good for all people, ages & genders.
Come with me to have fun. Everyone is welcome. You can take yourself but you will not experience all that is available, e.g. How to get at items of interest, to know when, where and history as appropriate. To use available time to best advantage.
Note: Book early to be certain of a place. I welcome comments and suggestions, it helps improve the service; complaints also. In 1994 I had two complaints from the same person during their holiday and in 2002, one more. Not bad for that length of time.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Extract Earth's Lubricant (Oil) and cause "ARMAGEDDON"
Use more Trees, Plants and plant fibres. Use more domestic animal products.

 

Local items of interest 19/8/16:

Great activity on the River. On Thursday our neighbour telephoned us at 9.30 pm and told us an empty boat was floating down river, at about 6 MPH. It was a Loch Shiel Hotel boat. I chased it with Impala (our little tender boat ) and caught up just above the new bridge. I transferred to it and tied Impala aft. I got the oars sorted about 100m from the Gorge and rowed back up to just below the bridge. Meanwhile Diana phoned the Hotel and Andy Maclean came down to meet me.
I had almost a mirror occurrerce some 6 years ago.


On Friday, John Blakely & I were fishing the top White Post beat at about 8 pm. We had been using wet flies and on seeing Trout rising I changed to a home made dry fly. "Neo Girl" (Hook #8, short shank, curbed with wide gape. White tail. Black body with Palmered Badger cock hackle). A 3kg Grills took this on the 3rd cast. A first for me with the dry fly.

 

Take a look at Google Earth, the circular crater is very clear, lying at the foot of the sand bar in Loch Shiel. (GPS ref. N 056 45 13.07 W005 45 04.95). I think it is a Meteor strike site. The MOD say it is not a bomb legacy. One Academic thinks it is man made but there is no evidence. Does anyone have the answer?
Covered by shallow water at most times but accessible in dry periods.
Loch Shiel was low enough to walk over the site from June to early July, as usual. It is also low now - not common for this time of year.
Has anyone got more info on the site for us?
