Family Adventure Canoe Trips:

Intro to Expedition Paddling (Paddling and Camping)



Taking the premise of the introduction to paddle sport course with the additional art of expeditioning skills and an overnight camp on a deserted island!. Sleeping on the uninhabited Priory Island near Kenmore which is steeped in history, it has been a crannog (500bc) a more recently a monastery (16th century). The following morning we leave camp and the loch behind as we travel down the river Tay whilst learning white water skills appropriate to the novice canoeist, finishing in Aberfeldy. The overnight stay will be under canvas, all equipment can be hired through our outfitting service or alternatively you could bring a tent, sleeping bag stove etc.


This is an ideal introduction to multi day tripping or just a fun one off for the family.
