Whether you’re an experienced SUP adventurer or wanting to try your first ever SUP adventure holiday, our four-day Scottish wilderness trip takes place on the breath-taking waters of Scotland’s West Coast and promises something refreshing and exciting. Deep in the heart of the West Coast region we will find true wilderness, wildlife and adventure.
Ever watched Bear Grylls on the TV and wanted a bit of the action? Here’s your chance to get a taste of expedition life. Make the most of the fresh Spring air and paddle where few people have travelled, drinking in the stunning mountain scenery of a remote Scotland from its glistening rivers and streams.
“We glided along deeper into the wilderness, occasionally passing a small empty croft or a stalking lodge, no roads, no stress, no hustle and bustle, no signal – perfect!”
SUP gives you the vantage of seeing wildlife undisturbed. Wild otters on the banks, deer grandly stalking the mountains and eagles ruling the air are all part of the scenery. Exploring the Scottish mountains is thirsty work and the tour includes a stop at the UK’s most remote pub The Old Forge at Knoydart, where well-thumbed instruments hang on the wall to provide light relief for any wandering traveller.
“We swim and get totally lost in the beauty that surrounds us broken only occasionally by someone pointing out a porpoise cruising past or an eagle soaring overhead.”
No roads lead to this part of Scotland and the journey is self-propelling, so we travel at the pace of the group. That said, we recommend this trip for people comfortable paddling up to 5 hours a day with breaks. We set up camp in truly remote areas where silence is golden.
Our experienced guides know the area really well and spend months planning the trip in advance (although we can’t predict the weather!). Passionate about exploring wild places, they keep our adventurers safe, happy and enthralled in their Scottish adventure.
“As we slid onto the water, with our boards creating small ripples on the glassy loch we are again lifted out to the distant ocean, standing, gliding silently, with the clouds covering the Munros landing like linen as they draped over and slid down to the distant shoreline.”
