Canoeing Holidays and Tours

Whether you are a complete novice, or an experienced paddler, we can arrange a canoe touring package to suit. We offer private bespoke trips for both guided and self supported adventures. Just tell us where and when you would like to go and we will put together an experience you will never forget!

We regularly run trips on the River Tweed, Great Glen Canoe Trail, Loch Lomond and the River Tay but we can arrange holidays to other destinations too, just let us know where you would like to explore next!

 The River Tweed

The Tweed is a beautiful and scenic river running through the heart of the Scottish Borders. If done in its entirety, from Peebles to Berwick-Upon-Tweed, it makes a fantastic 4-5 day trip (depending on group experience and river levels). We can, however, arrange shorter trips if required by altering the start and finish locations. 

The majority of the river is Grade 1 but it has a number of smaller rapids (around grade 2) along the way to add a bit of excitement, making it a perfect canoe touring river for all levels of ability and experience.

The River Tay 

With an interesting mix of Loch, easy grade 1 river and trickier white water sections (up to grade 3) this is another classic route within easy reach of the central belt. 

Starting in Killin and finishing near Perth this trip normally takes around 4 days, again depending on group experience and river levels. As with the Tweed, shorter trips can be arranged.

The Great Glen Canoe Trail 

Generally paddled from Fort William to Inverness (due to the prevailing winds) this 4-5 day paddle is one of the most iconic canoe touring routes in Scotland. 

With stunning views of the Highlands, wild open water, loch side camping and historical canal sections this trip is a must for any paddler.

It's difficulty, however, is often underestimated as many consider it to be a 'flat water' route. In reality, given the correct weather conditions, it can be a serious undertaking with waves on the larger lochs reaching several meters in height! Caution should therefore be given to any inexperienced groups intending to carry out a self guided trip.
