We managed to get out for a paddle on Saturday (see Knoydart Coast) without completely wrecking my shoulder. We launched at Mallaig and went north across the mouth of Loch Nevis to Airor, just past Doune. On the way back I landed briefly just north of Mallaig amongst a lot of rubbish washed up on the shore. Mostly it was fish boxes and plastic drums.
I grew up in a fishing village, and I know lots of items are accidentally lost overboard while working at sea. But when you see it gathered in one place, so close to a major working port, you have to wonder whether it's not excessive.
