Fort Augustus, Scotland, 13/6-2011
To go through the Caledonian Canal is a really nice way to explore the fantastic landscape of Scotland. Here you also get the great opportunity to meet lots of friendly people and new friends.
The canal is leading through the well known lake Loch Ness. Two years ago I spent some time snorceling in the lake in hope to meet the famous monster, Nessie. But all I could see was the never ending brown water, no monster...
Loch Ness is a really beautiful lake and the surroundings are amazing. This time we did not jump into the water. Instead we had a nice and humoristic sailing cross the lake. It is always important with humour and in our boat there is plenty of it!
Our plan is to continue our sailing from Scotland, to the west coast of Ireland and from there south to the Azores. At the moment there is stormy weather approaching the west coast of Ireland and Scotland and we now have to wait until it is getting better.
