Robin Hood and Hawaiian capers

Craig and Bill were covering for Bob of Taylor Made Adventures delivering some activities for Callander Holiday Village near...well Callander actually.

We had a fun session doing archery in the morning with some folks down for the weekend from Dunfermline - they were well up for it and and the kids just loved trying to burst the balloon for a bag of Haribos.

After a quick bite of lunch, we were into canoeing mode and lugging the boats into Loch Lubnaig for a tour of the loch and a wee trip out to a Crannog - amazing features out on lochs from hundreds of years ago.  These were built by taking out large stones and boulders out into the loch and dumping until eventually an island is built and then a house structure on stilts is built on top - amazing what man can do when he puts his mind to it!

The weather was having fun with us with rain, snow, sleet and snow, followed by wonderful sunshine - a true Scottish summer's day.   A trip up to the head of the loch and the 6 of us headed back down the east side of the loch passing the campers and fishermen...we really are the dirtiest of folks - the litter on the beach and in the water was so appalling...how can folks come to wonderful places and dump their rubbish...confusedandtragicirony.com


Anyway, we had a great time and all thoroughly enjoyed a paddle up the loch with beautiful calm conditions
