Loch Tay and River Tay

We 3 took off for a trip on Loch Tay and the river Tay over the weekend. Left Killin about lunchtime on Friday and set off with strengthening easterlies helping us on our way. Found a perfect campsite after about 11kms. Saturday and the wind had swung round to N and W with a good force 4 to paddle against. Decided to camp on the island close to Kenmore, which was just after lunch but we wanted to have a play on the river and thought Sunday would be better as there would not be any fishermen around. Paddled to Aberfeldy on Sunday but poled up and down the Lower Lyon for the practise as the water level was low enough for us to get well beyond the usual take out. Did not see anyone else all day, surprising as the weather was quite good.
