Booked last minute for my two children aged 11 and 14, as an introduction to paddleboarding, and they were not disappointed!
Nothing was a problem, and Rhionna and Scott went out of their way to accommodate us.
We had a beautiful morning for it, and, other than a miscommunication, and no phone reception,which delayed the start of the lesson, the kids thoroughly enjoyed it.
My 11 year old now wants a paddleboard for Christmas, so Scott definitely made an impression!

Will absolutely book again when we next visit. Thank you.

Highly recommend hiring these paddleboards. Easy collection and drop off and they are they are in great bags for carrying to and from car. Quality bit of kit and all worked perfectly.

We hired the boards and used them at both Loch Migdale and Loch Brora. Highly recommend Loch Migdale. Short walk from car and stunning scenery.

Will be hiring again.

Had the most amazing paddle to Dunrobin with Scott yesterday. Me and my friend are both quite new to SUP and he took us out to the castle in the most amazing conditions. The weather was great and WOW the views just blew you away. We could have stayed there all day. Scott kept us right and we felt very safe having him on hand if needed. His Dog Alba was also an amazing SUP buddy.

Alison and I booked the paddle boards having been it previously for half an hour elsewhere.

Scott was very knowledgeable giving us detailed instructions on how to inflate and set the board's up. Scott also went through safety advice and tips for paddling, correct stance, paddling techniques and getting back on should we fall off.

Everything was explained in a way we understood it, without being patronising and condescending.

The weather was a bit hit and miss but Rhionna and Scott kept in touch and we were able to arrange a time and location that suited is all and the weather.

I would highly recommend Sutherland Adventure Company for anyone wanting to try stand up paddle boarding for the first time, or for those just wanting to hire the equipment.
The equipment seemed brand new and in perfect condition. Our rental included wetsuit, boots and gloves too.

It was obvious from speaking to Scott that he was passionate about the environment and minimising our impact on it at the loch side. 👏👏👏
