We did a 1hr canoe session with David today. I think the 2 1/2 hour one would have been too long for our children (9 & 11) but this was just perfect. We all had a fantastic time and I would highly recommend them.More

Stag weekend - went canoeing on Loch Lomond and Gorge Scrambling nearby. Couldn't have enjoyed it anymore if I tried. Staff are fantastic and friendly, activities are well planned, a day to remember.
