Welcome :: Fàilte

We’re a group of recreational paddlers based in the Scottish Highlands who enjoy all forms of canoeing and kayaking. Our members can be found on (and in) the waters around Inverness most weekends of the year.  We are active in most forms of paddlesport – whitewater, sea touring, open boat paddling and surf.

We aim to cater for paddlers of all abilities by promoting the sport of canoeing within a safe and friendly environment. We have a growing membership and are affiliated to the Scottish Canoe Association.

    'Refresher' course - Spring 2017  iCal entry for this event   

    This course is aimed at those who have done the introductory course or other paddling in the past, but who may not have paddled much subsequently and would like to refresh their skills. It will also be ideal if you have done some paddling and would like to develop your skills to BCU 2* level.


    Introductory course - Spring 2017   iCal entry for this event  

    So you want to give paddlesports a try, but are not sure how to get started? This course is for those who are new to canoeing and kayaking or those who have had very little paddling experience and would like to gain basic skills and knowledge. Given the variety of disciplines within paddlesports, we try our very best to introduce course participants to a range of boats; including river kayaks, sea kayaks, and open or “Canadian” canoes. By the end of the course, most people will have enough experience to join in club trips and begin exploring the rivers, lochs and sea of the  Scottish Highlands. 

    Pool sessions start 17 March. Book now to avoid disappointment
