Eleanor and James Crossing Scotland Coast to Coast

Post by vortex » Tue Sep 14, 2010 1:23 am

Eleanor, age 11, and dad James are paddling in an Advanced Elements Expedition Tandem, 100km across Scotland from Loch Linnhe on the west coast, through the Caledonian Canal to Inverness on the east coast.

Eleanor and James are kayaking to raise money for Marie Curie Care and the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

They are over half way now & the blog is well worth a read:

Eleanor and James finally made it to the coast, they did incredibly well facing horendous waves on Loch Ness on their journey.

Well done! Great photos & blog.

The team even made it in to the local press:
