Scotland offers all sorts of canoeing, kayaking and rafting possibilities, from tranquil paddling across calm lochs to severe white water conditions on grade 6 stretches. The companies listed below can help you make the most of your paddling, whether it’s equipment hire, kayak instruction or a multi-day canoe trip across Scotland.

There can be few better adventures than kayaking across the open sea, and with its myriad small islands, Scotland makes a wonderful place to explore by sea-kayak. You will have excellent opportunities to see whales, dolphins and other wildlife as you travel remote and breathtaking scenery. Our companies provide sea kayaking training and/or expeditions in various parts of Scotland.

An open canoe expedition will take you back to a time before roads when the best way to get around Scotland was by water. Of course we’ve got roads now – lots of them! – but all the more reason to get away from them with an open canoe trip through some of Scotland’s wildest and most beautiful landscapes.

White water rafting on one of Scotland’s fast-moving rivers makes a great day out for almost any group – friends, workmates, school groups, management teams… Our companies will not only provide the raft, the gear and the experienced raft leader, they will also make sure that your whitewater rafting experience is fun, fast – and safe!
