Loch Ness in Winter...
My balance is a-wobble but I can still sail.
All the summer tourists have gone, so I'm going to take my old boat out onto Loch Ness again, and chugg along and drift about a while.
In Winter the canal is closed at week-ends. Imagine... the whole of Loch Ness to yourself, all week-end, and virtually all week.
In flat calm, the place is magical.
I can chugg the whole way up, and chugg down again...... 50 miles in total.
During the Christmas break, the whole canal is closed for 2 weeks, so you get Ness all to yourself... all 7 billion tons of water to float on.
It's a bit cold, but I've got a central heater.
Things could be worse.
