Please note: we do not offer single-day canoe or kayak hire for less than 5 boats where delivery and collection are required. We no longer offer single boat hire (for any duration) on the Great Glen Canoe Trail and River Spey.
The only exceptions to this are if customers can collect & return equipment to our Inverness or Aviemore offices. A vehicle with rigid roof bars will be required.
We offer as comprehensive canoe and kayak hire service, expedition outfitting and customer shuttle service to just about any location in Scotland.
We have 3 hire locations servicing venues across Scotland:
Inverness – servicing Great Glen Canoe Trail, Glen Affric, West Coast (e.g. Knoydart, Loch Moidart, Loch Shiel) and North West Scotland, River Beauly and Moray Coast. Note: we are fully booked for canoe/kayak hire involving shuttles at our Inverness base until the end of September.
Aviemore – servicing the River Spey and the River Dee (Canadian canoes only).
Loch Lomond – we are currently unable to accept any new canoe or kayak hire bookings from our Loch Lomond base due to exceptionally high demand for activities. We hope to start offering hire again towards the end of September onwards.
Loch Tay – for Loch Tay (half and single day hires – no pre-booking available)
It is not possible to canoe or kayak directly from our equipment store locations, so transport will be required to reach your paddling venue. You have the option of transporting equipment yourself or booking our shuttle service (where it is possible).
All hire/ shuttle bookings must be made in advance in order that arrangements can be made to transport equipment to your chosen location.
