We had a wonderful time canoeing on Loch Ness with Boots N Paddles. I mean, who do you know that went canoeing on a Loch with it's own monster. Our guide was super nice and me and my 12 year old were able to keep pace. Lunch was delicious too. They were very accommodating to our desire to canoe on... More

Had a wonderful time with Donald kayaking on Loch Ness. Yes it was February. Yes it was a little chilly. But no, it was raining nor was it very windy. Donald was very patient with those of us who had not or were not strong kayakers. He was knowledgeable, helpful and fun! We had a great time. Would I recommend... More

Fantastic trip with Chris this morning around the south of Loch Ness. We were a group of 4 adults, 5 kids (11x2, 13x2, 14) with varied (but not much) canoeing experience. Chris was an excellent guide and instructor - great mix of encouragement, explanation, humour and patter/knowledge about the local area. We had amazing weather, which definitely helped. But regardless... More

I booked a 2.5 hour session for myself and three others. Mike our instructor was excellent and ensured everyone in the group knew what/where/why and how before leaving dry land. We were guided around parts of Loch Ness taking in sights, facts and local history all whilst paddling about. The session is suitable for all abilities, even those who've never... More
