Canoeing on Loch Ness

To canoe or kayak Loch Ness is an awesome experience and definitely something that should be on your bucket list.

Explore the beautiful, southern end of world famous Loch Ness in the company of a fully qualified canoe guide.  We've been running guided canoe trips since 2004 and this is definitely up there with our most popular - often deemed a holiday highlight!  This 2.5 hour experience starts on the shores of Loch Ness, from picturesque Fort Augustus.  There is so much to see and learn at this beautiful part of Loch Ness and you will experience it all in our very stable open (Canadian-style) canoes.

Enjoy stunning views and experience the likes of Inchnacardoch Bay, Cherry Island (the site of an ancient ‘crannog’ - house on stilts), Fort Augustus Abbey and the mouths of the Rivers Tarf and Oich from the unique perspective of a small boat on the big loch.

As part of the experience, you'll rest your arms and stretch your legs on a small, secluded beach on the shores of Loch Ness, where you can chill, enjoy a hot drink with shortbread (included) and visit a stunning waterfall - make sure you pack a camera!

If the weather is calm you will also head out into the middle of the loch to look for Nessie…. History buffs can discover how Fort Augustus got its name and you can learn about the engineering marvel that is the Caledonian Canal.

A great canoe tour for anyone visiting the area and wanting to try something a bit different.  After your experience with us, why not refuel at one of the many pubs and restaurants in Fort Augustus,  many of which look over the canal locks!
