Explore the jewel in the crown of Loch Lomond – its historic islands by canoe and foot.
This is a wonderful introduction to the loch and islands, which offers stunning views with Ben Lomond as the backdrop.
Starting from picturesque village of Aldochlay near Luss, you will get the chance to explore the islands of world famous Loch Lomond in Canadian-style canoes – these boats can be rafted together to create a stable platform and to eliminate the risk of capsize, which means that they are suitable for all. Each raft would hold 4 people.
You will be under the watchful eyes of our experienced local guided, offering canoeing tips as you go, and information about what you see on your journey. We rest our paddles on one of the loch’s most isolated island beaches and enjoy a gentle stroll to the summit to take it the breathtaking scenery from a totally different perspective and learn more about the loch and it’s legends on the way. If you’re lucky, you might just catch a glimpse of the resident wallabies on the island of Inchconnachan. Surely, that would be a story for you to tell when you get home!

Two friends and I went canoeing on Loch Lomond at the weekend. Ryan was our instructor and he was really friendly and knowledgable. He taught us how to canoe and soon we were out on the water making our way around the islands. I would say this was half canoeing, half tour as Ryan knew a lot about the loch, answering the many questions we had. We stopped off on Inchconnachan to look at the old house which was built there, and later stopped at the other side of the island where we even spotted one of the wallaby! Incredible experience and was great to try out canoeing. Definitely recommend!
