Lochs & Linns of the Western Highlands
(Linn - a confusion of two words, Scottish Gaelic ‘linne’ pool and Old English ‘hlynn’ torrent)
A chance to experience the thrills and beauty of the Western Highlands, returning every evening to the warmth of our deluxe accommodation. This trip will allow you to develop you canoeing skills on the stunningly beautiful lochs and white water the area has to offer. Canoeing in a small group your highly qualified and experienced canoeing coach(s) will select rarely paddled amazing venues, ensuring your learning and enjoyment at all times. This trip is perfect for those who want to explore new places in Scotland and gain more experience on open & white water.
Each evening you will return our deluxe accommodation where a brilliant evening meal will be prepared for you and then have the chance to relax in readiness for another amazing day out on the water.
Half way through your trip you will get the chance to experience some Scottish culture and have a rest away from your canoe. So what will you decide on; a lovely walk, a trip around a whisky distillery, sketching alongside a beautiful loch, or perhaps learning to carve your own wooden spoon?
For those with sufficient previous experience this trip can include training and/or assessment for the BCU Canoe 3 star award.
