The Paddling:

5 days of paddling. An opportunity to push your paddling to the next level on a range of grade 3-4 working on the technical and tactical skills needed. To paddle any grade of water we believe there are only a handful of techniques and tactics required, we will re-introduce you to these on day one and continually reinforce them throughout the week until they are second nature.

We aim to paddle as many of the "classic" rivers as we can during this trip and aim for them to be different each day unless the group decides they want to revisit a particular river. Rivers that could be paddled depending on the group and water levels - Etive, Orchy, Spean, Roy, Nevis, Inver Garry, Allt a Chaorainn.

Accommodation and Food:

Everyone will have their own single bed but will be sharing a room with someone else on the trip, we will make sure that men and women are sharing their room with the same gender. The cottage has an open plan living room, dining room, kitchen, Wi-Fi and  a drying room with washer and drier. As with all our adventures we offer this as self catering, this allows the flexibility to cook communally, individually or head to the pub.

Client Reviews

"Had the best week in Scotland. Some of the most professional guiding/ coaching I’ve come across. Great atmosphere on and off the water. Cant wait to paddle with Rapid Skills again!"

"Loved every minute of it, Josh gave us clear simple short instructions at the right time. He then demonstrated that by running the section showing us what he meant. There was no pressure to run sections that were harder."
