This revised and updated 2nd edition is an illustrated guide to some of the finest tours of Scotland's waterways. Wild lochs, placid canals and broad rivers, as they can only be seen from a canoe or kayak.Eddie has chosen his favourite twenty-five inland touring routes and described them in great detail. The routes are beautifully illustrated with numerous colour photos and maps. The selected routes are suitable for open canoes, sit-on-tops and touring kayaks. Many of them can be tackled as a single voyage or a series of day trips, with campsites en route. The journeys are all accessible but highly varied, taking place on inland lochs, sheltered sea lochs and rivers (of an easy nature, up to grade two).A wonderful book for planning voyages and inspiring dreams, or sharing your experiences with others.
