  • Description

    This is a trip of stunning paddling and picture-perfect campsites allowing us to travel along one of Scotland's most famous Glens.

    Starting on the west coast just outside Fort William we traverse the country using the gentle, sheltered water of the Caledonian Canal, which links together the lochs of Lochy, Oich and the formidable Loch Ness.

    Trip planning made easy!

    We know that when you're on a trip you don't want to worry about logistics, so we've taken care of everything! 

    At the end of the trip, we'll get you back to the start location or if you would rather travel onwards from the finish location we'll either drop you in town or help you organise onward travel from the finish location.

    When it comes to food we have got a mouth-watering menu put together, so all you have to worry about is enjoying it. 


    This is a novice level trip, you should be comfortable being outside for the duration of the trip.

    Your paddling skills don't need to be excellent but we do recommend you've been on the water before coming on the trip.
