Canoeing

Looking to learn the skill of Open Canoeing? Our Canoe taster sessions are a great way to introduce you to the sport whilst having loads of fun!

For the session, our instructors will equip you with a buoyancy aid and paddle and give a brief safety talk in preparation for your canoe experience. Once on the water you will be practising paddling in a straight line, turning and stopping.

Once you have these skills mastered your guide will then lead you on a wonderful journey around one of the majestic lochs which are a mere stones throw from the centre!

Along the way your guide will teach you further skills & techniques , which will prove to come in handy for the games you will be playing!

You will also want to keep an eye skywards as Ospreys regularly come and fish on these lochs.

Alternatively a shorter hour and a half session is available on our very own pond. Which is jam packed with learning new skills and loads of games.
