    An amazing 4 day/3 night SUP expedition into the wilds of the West Coast of Scotland. This expedition really sees it all, from Historic Freshwater Lochs to Gentle meandering rivers and Sea Lochs full of wildlife and history. 

    Day 1

    Meeting at Fort William Train station for roughly 9am, we will then transport you to our starting point at the Glenfinnan House Hotel. This will be our launch point under the foot of the Famous Glenfinnan monument, famous for its role in the Harry Potter movies and our start of the paddle down the magnificent and massive Loch Shiel(the fourth largest Loch in Scotland, shadowed by towering mountains on either side and wild forests, it’s a beautiful setting. 

    Camp 1 - Loch Shiel

    Day 2

    We continue our journey down Loch Sheil, The mountainous scenery now breaks into lowland pastures as the Loch turns westward before draining into the gentle River Shiel. Camping not far from the historic St Finans chapel, we will make a short stop here to explore the ancient burial ground. 

    Camp 2 - Loch Shiel 

    Day 3 - River and Sea

    The River is an easy mellow river with one small section of grade 1 until the River Drops into Cairn Pool. Dependant on tides, we most probably will have to portage round this section. We are now on saltwater and paddling into the historic Loch Moidart before setting camp on a remote island. 

    Camp 3 - Loch Moidart
