Testimonials from previous customers:

Just returned yesterday from a great trip to Scotland canoeing iconic Lochs such as Ness and Maree and the rivers Ness, Beauly and Spey. Although relatively inexperienced we were superbly coached by Rich and Ash. They built up our confidence and abilities during the week and really made us want to continue our canoeing adventure. Also great lodgings and fantastic hearty food gave us a real boost. Would highly recommend this or other trips with Canoe Trail. We will certainly be doing more.

Absolutely awesome week, can’t recommend Canoe Trail highly enough. Richard & Ashley are just fantastic instructors, tutors and guides. I learned so much in just one week and I’m so grateful for their patience, tuition and just downright awesomeness. Thank you so very much.
Iain, 2019

Just returned from a week in Scotland with Canoe Trail and it was one of the best organised trips I have done. The team were awesome, great instruction with loads of patience for those new to paddling, the venue was great and the food was a fantastic mix of local dishes, all prepared on site by the team.
