Many of us enjoy listening to tales of grand adventures from experienced travellers and daydream about travelling the world, escaping from the routine 9 to 5 job for something more exciting.

Kayaking around Scotland
Scotland is a paradise for kayakers, with many different types of canoeing and kayaking activities taking place all year round, save the winter months. All you need to do is buy a kayak, hire one or borrow one. Go on and grab a paddle and get into the water. You can paddle toward a premeditated destination on rivers, coastlines or lochs.
If you’re venturing deeper in the lakes or far into the river, it’s advised to bring a friend along as it’s not safe to go out into the water by yourself, especially if you’re a novice to kayaking. So, expect to paddle aggressively whether in groups, pairs or with a qualified guide.
