This is the next stage for many looking for further thing to do in canoes. We have a range of rivers for different abilities. Some experience is necessary - a weekend introduction to paddling (above). Some rivers require camping, some we stay in self catering accommodation and some we base from hotels. On rivers, boats cannot be stabilised so plan to get wet at some point. We can combine the weekend course with a river to make an amazing weeks holiday for an up for it group. (With a rest day in between)
A 6 day expedition across Scotland paddling Canals and Lochs, including Loch Ness. There is also the option to canoe some river sections. An amazing life memorable trip and surprisingly adaptable. This trip can be supported or unsupported by the power boat depending on needs. It is possible to operate from hotels (if supported) but more normal to camp in stunning locations. There is something amazing about starting at one coast and paddling to another. This does require the right groups, confident they will enjoy the challenge. Navigating the lock gates requires some carrying of canoes if done without powerboat. Canoes can be stabilised if using the Canals and Lochs route without rivers.Great Glen Page
On a much larger boat than the other products (typically 40ft) this is an extended sailing experience over several days. Living and working together as a team or family, it’s a great way to spend time together while exploring the most beautiful stretches of Western Scotland.
The mobility edition focuses on the needs of those with specicfic mobility disabliltes: extra time is built in for transfers, ports are selected for their accesiblity features and nights are spent in marinas with good facilities.
Expect to experience stunning sunsets, wild life, amazing remote anchorages and possibly a distillery or two (depending on weather and plans).
You are cared for by the Skipper and 1st mate who help keep the boat running smoothly, but its also hands on for the crew with both boat handling and daily living (including washing up!).
This edition is focused on the needs and asperations of those that the mobility edition does not favour.
This edition expects to live aboard the boat for overnights at anchor or mooring in remote venues.
Scotland is home to the most majestic coastline and sailing is the ultimate way to explore a harmony of wind, water, tide and land.
This may be benificail for those who may like to focus on the single environment of the boat or may find moving around the marina environment stressfull or difficult.
We run courses in the sun doing a form of rock climbing called sport climbing. Sport climbing is super accessible compared to British traditional climbing. In sport climbing the protection is permanently attached to the rock, this removes the need to place your own protection on the way up which speeds up and simplifies climbing.
Climbing becomes all about moving on the rock and allows leaders to climb confidently on much harder challenges.
A mixture of late year sunshine, excellent continental food and low stress climbing makes for a fantastic trip away with lots and lots of rock adventures. Oh yes and its very rare to be rained off!
We offer all of our activities as private bookings. It is a great way to tailor the dates, adaptions, and ambitions of you and your friends or family to exactly what you want.
Open trips are a great way to meet other like minded people. Sometimes there is nothing more exciting than sharing an adventure and making life long friends along the way.
