A KAYAKER reportedly travelled from England to camp at Loch Lomond over the Easter Weekend.

The Loch Lomond Rescue Boat (LLRB) team was called out to Inchtavannach, one of the larger islands on the loch, at around 1.50pm yesterday (Tuesday, April 6) after they received a report from Police Scotland.

The man was allegedly was camping on the west side of the island and after going for a walk around the island, he returned to find the paddle missing from his kayak.

LLRB volunteers located him and safely transferred him and his equipment to his car at Aldochly.

Lockdown restrictions currently indicate that people across Scotland must "stay local", and can only make non-essential journeys within their local authority area.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “The local lifeboat service were contacted and the incident handed to them – the man was rescued safe and well.”

The incident was the second callout for the rescue boat team this week, after they came to the aid of two people in Loch Lomond on Monday afternoon.

A passer-by was reportedly concerned for the pair's safety after they were spotted in a small rib boat on the water near to Cameron House Hotel, struggling in poor weather conditions.

The occupants were instructed by the team to put life jackets on, and LLRB stayed alongside until they had returned to their point of launch.
