Terrific Teith

Terrific Teith

The River Teith at Callander, is a real gem of a river. It was one of our local rivers when we lived in Stirling pre little trekkers and I dread to think how many times I’ve actually paddled it. From quick post work summer evening paddles, to giving beginners their first taste of moving water. I’ve paddled it when it’s been so low you’ve had to bump over every rock as you’ve scraped your way down and so high the carpark at the start has been well and truly underwater and the paddle has been over in a blur. So you’d think now this old favourite is back on our doorstep we’d be there most weekends. I’m ashamed to say although we’ve been back in Scotland a few years now we still hadn’t paddled it. Well that needed to be rectified as soon as possible.

Trading Places

In a post last year called 'The River Wild', I explained how we had realised that before long we would have to expand into two canoes to be able to take Little Sister with us and allow James and Little Brother to become front paddlers in their own right. A stepping stone towards this was for me to get used to paddling at the stern.

Our new favourite loch

Our new favourite loch

As you will have gathered by now between March and early October most of our outdoor adventures have a fishing element. With the trout season limited to less than 7 months it would be a shame to waste any time (so say the anglers) but it could get quite monotonous after a while - especially with a non-fishing member of the party.
