A wonderful early morning journey by Canadian Canoe.

A gentle flat water paddle through the impressive Aigas Gorge to look for otters and feeding osprey as the sun rises… a truly memorable experience.  After a basic introduction to steering the canoes we will proceed in silence down the River Beauly on a short but stunning journey to experience river life at sunrise.

On our previous trips we have been lucky enough to see families of Roe Deer drinking at the edge of the river, watched Peregrine Falcon fledglings stumble along a rock ledge, watched otters playing in the gorge, badgers foraging and ospreys catching fish and taking them back to their riverside nest to feed their young.

Obviously no sightings can ever be guaranteed, but even without the wildlife this is one of the very best short canoe journeys in the country.
