      Paddle through the heart of the Highlands

      If you fancy canoeing in Scotland, it’s a truly magical way of exploring Scotland’s lochs and rivers,  with the canoes helping us access some very remote areas of stunning wilderness.

      Our hotel based trips are the perfect way to try canoeing in comfort. If you choose a camping trip, like the Great Glen Canoe Trail, you will love loading up the canoe and pushing off into the wild, without the weight on your back!

      Our reviews prove testament that these are some of the best canoe camping trips in the UK. Canoeing on the River Spey is so good that we offer two trips – one with camping and the other staying in hotels!

      Canoeing is a wonderfully relaxing past-time, and our range of trips offer something for every taste and ability.

      Our holidays reviewed in your own words...

      Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us. Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

      That’s why we read each of our client’s reviews and although we don’t respond to all of them, if it’s glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.

      The Bottom Line

      The Bottom Line

      The canoe trip was beginner in the sense of requiring minimal skills but very strenuous. I had a great time and loved the challenge but I would suggest being clear about this. Most people have better lower extremity than upper extremity fitness A person must be in good physical shape and pursuing a fitness program to enjoy this trip canoeing is much more strenuous than walking or biking

      The Assynt is truly awe-inspiring, and seeing from a canoe on Loch Sionascaig is something I will never forget.
