Canoeing at Mackerstoun in August 2007. This is normally a grade III rapid on the left hand side of the river and the right hand side is dry, but it had been raining like mad, many local roads were flooded and the river level had shot up overnight.
I had paddled the left hand and came to grief, the others were more circumspect and took a much better line.
As usual the river looks a lot less difficult than it was.
Mitch and Davie were paddling, I meet them through http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk, a great site for open canoeists.
