Heading North.

I've finally managed to get a week off work. I was planning a two week trip up the far north-east coast in June but just couldn't afford to get away. Now I'm going up to Skye for a few days, after that I may stay on the island or I could head for deepest darkest Knoydart. Either way I hope to mix some sea kayaking with some mountain scrambling. When I first started paddling I had this idea of going rock climbing from a kayak, only ever managed it once that was on Lundy many years ago. Now I'm to fat and artritic for rock climbing (or am get fat and artritic because I don't rock climb anymore?). What ever, I'm really looking forward to a long ridge scramble after a good paddle.
