Many years ago from the age of 11 until 20 I did quite a bit of canoeing; often going on canoe camping trips. We are as a family going to Scotland for a couple of weeks this summer to do some walking and kayaking. To make it easy to transport I have invested in two inflatable kayaks, one a Z-Pro Tango and a Sevylor Yukon. Both are doubles and the Z-Pro can be paddled as a single as well. The Yukon has lots of storage space, so I hoping to do overnight camping with them along the many lochs that there are in Scotland and perhaps use them to bag a few remote Munro’s . Over the weekend I took a trip with my two sons and my eldest son’s girlfriend on the River Ancholme, which is only 5 minutes drive from home. As it was raining stair-rods in the morning we ended up doing a shorter trip. The River Ancholme is managed by the Environment Agency and has some good launching spots, several portage areas, which have picnic areas with benches, so it makes a good day trip.
I am surprised how good the inflatables are compared to rigids, which we have used for several years.
