b. Paddling in front of Eilean nam Faoileag (a cranog built c. 2,000 years ago) on Loch Brora.
3. The River Brora. The level of the River Brora and other local rivers can be found on the Scottish Canoe Association website here.
a. In the calm waters just upstream of the loch.
b. In the fast flowing waters below the loch. Depending on the volume of water there are about 20 garde 1-2 rapids between the loch and the sea. 1m is a 'good' level for paddling as you can canoe over most of the rocks at this level.
