If you haven’t canoed before don’t worry, our friendly experienced staff will show you how to handle your canoe, giving you the confidence to enjoy this exciting sport.  The open canoes we use are very stable and carry two adults, or two adults plus one or two small children.

Our flat water canoeing takes place on picturesque Loch Long, a magical place right at the heart of the Trossachs.   Our Loch Long canoe sessions depart from the Forest Holidays retreat in Ardgartan and consist of a safety brief, teaching of some basic paddling skills, a couple of fun games for all ages and then a gentle explore around the loch.

This really is a wonderful place to go paddling.

Please note, there is no need for you to be staying at Forest Holidays to take part, non residents more than welcome.
