Great day to escape the heat on land to the windy shores of Loch Ness. Great guide and a relaxing afternoon paddling round the top end of Loch Ness. Worth doing - a great little trip.

We LOVED our time on the Loch and our guide George was phenomenal. It was a very windy day and steering and paddling turned into quite a challenge for us as beginners. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this activity for a family with young children or...More

Stag weekend - went canoeing on Loch Lomond and Gorge Scrambling nearby. Couldn't have enjoyed it anymore if I tried. Staff are fantastic and friendly, activities are well planned, a day to remember.
