About

This challenge was first attempted on 2nd of July 2016 where we managed half the challenge before adverse weather caused us to call off the challenge on that day. We are now planning our second attempt at this 'world first' Loch Ness is the largest loch in Scotland and has more water than ALL the lakes in England and Wales combined. To circumnavigate the loch will take between 12 and 14 hrs of paddling covering a distance of just over 50 miles! The challenge will be done in ONE day. Hopefully Nessie will show up on the day to give us all a wee tow!
Please support us in this challenge. The Oban MS Therapy Center does a fantastic job to support MS sufferers in and around Oban.
Thank you very much

Good work! Having cycled around Loch Ness for a charity race (I use the term loosely), which was bad enough, I couldn't begin to imagine what kayaking around the perimeter would be like. You are all mad & admirable in equal measure. Best of luck!
