Scottish Canoe Routes

Loch Maree

With over sixty islands and large stands of Scots Pine, this is one of the most beautiful Scottish lochs. It is a good place to spend two or three days getting lost amidst the maze of channels, and exploring the interesting historical remains, as well combining paddling with an ascent of Slioch and Beinn Eighe. Loch Maree could form part of a larger loch circuit or cross-Scotland trip.

Canoeists are asked to contact Scottish Natural Heritage at Kinlochewe for information about which islands to steer clear of to avoid disturbance to the local Black-throated Diver populations.
