We don't want you to worry that you'll miss your first day of paddling or be too tired to paddle after a long drive up to Scotland so we have a day where you can arrive at any point during the day and when you arrive the kettle will be boiled and cake ready to eat as you chat to your guide, sort out your kit and get settled in.

We follow a contraints led approach to improving your paddling and use contextual interference (less painful than it sounds) to help ensure the skills are engrained so that you can continue to progress back home without a coach nudging you.

 

We do the same for your departure. You enjoy your last day of paddling and a good meal on the Friday before settling down in your comfy bed to re-energise prior to your journey home the next day.

 

As with all our adventures we offer this as self catering, this allows the flexibility to cook communally, individually or head to the pub.
