'Fantastic trip, from the incredible scenery to the home cooking, our guides were so friendly and really made everyone feel part of the team.  I got to tick off some of the best paddling in the UK and the night camping on the Loch was unforgettable'

'I was lucky enough to book on this trip and hoped to improve my basic paddling but what I got was a host of incredible paddling opportunities, and the team helped me to improve far beyond what I thought I could do.  I loved this trip and can't recommend it enough'
Tina, April 2018 trip

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.
I will certainly by using Canoe Trail again and can't wait to see what trips I can squeeze in next year.

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 Trails 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.
