Eastwood & East Kilbride Canoe Club’s sea kayakers took advantage of the swollen rivers recently when they braved the fast flowing river Braan that runs through Perth & Kinross.

Andy Dean, Andrew Bell and Paul Gregory started at Amulree, a hamlet 10km north of Crieff and ran the section called Upper Braan into the Mid Braan.

The first stretch was grade 2 rapids which quickly became a long stretch of grade 3s. During this Paul and Andrew’s boats were forced together and Paul took a tumble but was fine.
