My husband and I decided to try kayaking as it’s somethig we had always wanted to try. We found venture caledonia on facebook and we decided to book up.
Billy, the instructor, picked us up at lomond shores and drove us to luss, once we arrived he supplied us with all the equipment needed for a day on the loch.
After getting us on the water we had a short tutorial on how to paddle correctly and off we went. We both got the hang of it quickly and because you’re constantly moving you are warm, even mid winte.
We had lunch on the first island we arrived at, which had lovely views of Ben lomond and a notice board to give you information on the island, which billy also told us a lot about the island.
The second island we arrived at had a ruin of an old small castle/church type building.
Billy goes at your pace so you always feel calm and comfortable. Our whole trip lasted about 4 hours but there are options of shorter/longer trips.
It was one of the best experiences I have done and will definitely be booking up again with Billy!
Iv already recommended venture Caledonia to all of my friends and family!
I have attached a few of the photos of the day

Thank Alex S

Hi Alex. I'm so happy that you had a great day out. It turns out you were a natural for your 1st time in a kayak, I told you it was easy. Hope to see you back again sometime.
Maybe you would enjoy the wild camping kayak trips.
