Moriston, Garry and Etive (Scotland) - Weekend


Event details

Advanced White Water kayak trip to the rivers Moriston, Garry and Etive up near Fort William. We'll be doing the Garry on Saturday, followed by the upper section of the Moriston (several runs).  Sunday we'll get packed up and do the Etive on the way back.

1. Event co-ordinator: Simon Lerpiniere (07811144461)

2. Trip Leader leader: Simon Lerpiniere (plus likely other leaders in attendance)

3. Trip type: River

4. Level of ability :  Advanced

5. Date: 19/05/2023 (evening travelling) until 21/05/2023.  Paddling 20th and 21st.

6. Venue: Fort William (or nearby), Scotland.

7. Meet location / time: Travelling up Friday night (19th).

8. Meet to share lifts at: We'll certainly want to arrange lift shares, so probably a meet at J36 (M6).  Full details closer to the time.

9. Restrictions:  Unfortunately I'll have to limit this trip to those I've paddled with before, as we'll need a strong team that knows each other for these rivers.  If you really want to come along, but haven't paddled with me before, please message me on WhatsApp before signing up.

10. Accommodation: Booked at https://campsite.faichemard.scot/.  Individual pitches.  Cost is £30 each.

11. Notes: The Moriston is a short section, but worth paddling each little bit several times.  We'll be carrying out boats quite a bit, so be prepared to carry.  The walk all the way to the top is about 1km, but it's only 300m between sections.  We can shuttle to the very top for a final run.  The Etive will probably be low (which is how we want it really), but will require some portage around shallow sections.

I am happy to co-ordinate and lead the trip. However, as we will be a team, we are jointly responsible for each other’s safety on the water.

Please ensure you carry the correct kit for the trip you are attending.

RSVP open time TBC.  Attendees will be added to a WhatsApp group for the event.  Please check WhatsApp and the calendar to confirm all details.

Sorry, no guests on this one.
