If getting wet isn’t really your thing, then you’re probably looking for something a little more luxurious. Canadian canoeing or “open boating” may be just what you’re looking for.
Canoeing is a relatively dry sport, depending on the crew you have!
One canoe will accommodate three children, or two adults, any more and it gets very unstable.
From Loch Insh you may hire for an hour or two, explore 4 miles up river in the Insh Marshes nature reserve.
All our equipment meets the requirements of the British Canoe Union national standard.
You can hire for the whole day too!
