In August 2009 I made an attempt to kayak solo from Aberdovey, Mid-Wales to Loch Eil near Fort William, Scotland and climb the mountains of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis on the way. This was my first major solo sea kayaking adventure since I kayaked solo around the Isle of Skye in 1996. Unfortunately I had to retire from the attempt due to storm damage to my tent when I reached St Bees on the Cumbrian coast. However, I had managed to get that far on my own and climb the mountains of Snowdon and Scafell Pike.
I will be attempting the challenge again in 2018 and you can read more about this here.
