Travelling by canoe is one of the finest ways to explore the wild waterways of Scotland. Whether you are out for a few hours, or a few days, you will quickly leave your cares behind. Your guide, Leon, is a qualified ecologist, an experienced professional bushcraft survival instructor, and a canoe leader. 

He can provide short canoe trips on Loch Ailort in Moidart. This is one of the most beautiful Scottish sea lochs, surrounded by mountains, forest and studded with small islands. He can lend his unique perspective on the wildlife, bushcraft, and exploration of the area.  You can visit caves, explore isolated sandy beaches, stunning ancient woodland and maybe even see an otter (the subject of Leon's PhD research).

Please contact us to discuss your requirements and arrange a date, then once agreed, book using the link below.


You may be happy to just paddle one of our wild landscapes by canoe - looking out for wildlife on the way.  However, if you want to add some land-based activities to your session we can provide the following:

  • Fire lighting with sparks

  • Coastal foraging - shellfish, fish and seaweed

  • Cooking on the campfire

  • Trees, plants and fungi, their uses in bushcraft, what you can and can't eat!

  • Tracking and wildlife 

  • Mountain or hill trekking  (we are providers for the National Navigation Award Scheme and Leon is a Mountain Leader)


As an example, we can take you on a Scottish island survival adventure, build a campfire and cook a foraged lunch on a quiet sandy beach looking out across the loch to the small isles.

On a multi-day trip we can   combine mountain journeys with canoeing as per our Mountain Loch Adventure.  


Please contact us for details.

Group size
We provide private canoe trips for families, friends (4 or less) and also run one to one sessions for individuals. These trips can be arranged around a time that suits both you and the guide.  We charge for the session rather than per person which makes it relatively economical for a family. If you have more than 4 in your group please enquire for rates.

Short trips:

half day (3.5 hours) - £299 per group (up to 6)
whole day (7 hours) - £499 per group (up to 6 )

Multi-day trips:
We also provide multi-day canoe trips such as the River Spey, Great Glen, Loch Morar, Loch Shiel, and Loch Moidart.  These journeys can either focus on paddling, or could include additional elements such as foraging or bushcraft.  

What to bring: 

Come prepared for a day spent outdoors with hiking boots or wellies, waterproofs and a water bottle. For multi-day trips we will advise you on a full kit list.
