Wilderness Adventure - canoeing in Scotland

Canoeing in Scotland allows you to enjoy the spectacular scenic beauty of Scotland from an entirely new perspective. Skimming gently through the softly lapping waters of one of Scotland's most beautiful lochs, being propelled entirely by your own efforts, is a deeply rewarding experience that's sure to linger long in your memory.

One of our most popular locations for open-boat canoeing in Scotland is Loch Ard, situated near Aberfoyle in the Trossachs National Park.

In an open-boat canoe you'll get closer to the environment and the wildlife that inhabits it than you ever could by other means. You'll have the chance to explore the many small islands dotted throughout the loch and even, water levels permitting, tackle the breathtaking rock jumps found on Castle Island, which range from 6ft to a dizzying 25ft in height.

Loch Ard is just one of the destinations where open-boat canoeing in Scotland can take you - each of Scotland's lochs has a special character of its own, and canoeing is the perfect way to really appreciate their unique appeal.
