Some 'interesting' lines there. Don't think I've ever seen so many beatings on the Boluisce. :lol:

Great carnage. Cheers guys. Was that all the Boluisce where it was full of trees? Looks like it needs some clearing?

The trees make it more interesting, I'm not kidding. It's a super short run, it's a bit like an obstacle course. So if ye do any pruning make sure its well thought out. We've pruned it aggressively in one or two places (near the bottom of the first rapid and the section between the end of the main rapid and the bridge). But some of the branches make the lines (the Hilton hole would be lame if it weren't for the big branch on river right, and there's another at the bottom of the main rapid on river right (I think its the one Barry is having difficulty with in the video).
