Rannoch Moor by packraft

We paddled Loch Ba on Rannoch Moor on our autumn packraft roadtrip. There is a short outlet river from the loch that goes down some easy rapids to Loch Laddon and so we set out to follow that link river through some of the most atmospheric scenery in the UK. Accompanied by the deeply felt warmth of spring sunshine and the deeply felt cold of hail and meltwater paddling we had a great day out.

Photographers love these erratics in the middle of the loch. Here, my model shows off the packraft she has caught!

The river between the two lochs is mostly flat, but has a bit of fun on it!

One happy packrafter, one cold dog!
