Scotland offers world-class canoe tripping. The magnificent scenery, abundance of water and liberated access laws make this an increasingly popular canoeing destination. On multi-day trips, setting up camp by the loch-side provides the perfect complement to the day’s paddling.

This site is designed to give the newcomer a taster of what Scotland has to offer; it is not intended to be a detailed guide. We do not wish to duplicate the many excellent sources of information that already exist.

For those who are prepared to strike off from the ”standard” routes and undertake portages of some length and difficulty, the potential still exists for opening up a considerable number of challenging new canoe routes.
