Typically available May to September and selected other dates.

Our guided canoe tours on Loch Ness start from picturesque Fort Augustus.  You get the opportunity to explore the southern end of Loch Ness in very stable open (canadian-style) canoes.  Young children will sit on an extra third seat in the canoe, so there are still two people to paddle and control the canoe.

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.

If the weather is calm we 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 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.
