In 2013 the Highland contingent if SiMBA charity decided to take on the Great Glen to raise funds and awareness. From the moment we contacted Boots N Paddles Calum, Mike & Alison went above and beyond to help us tailor this unique fundraiser. On 29th July 2014, our 23 participants, of varying abilities, excitedly met with Mike, Dan & Phil... More

Many thanks for your kind words and lovely review. It was great fun from our point of view too and a really nice bunch of people to go paddling with. As for the amount you've raised, that's just brilliant. A great effort for a great cause. Thanks again. More

We are a family of four (2 kids aged 10 and 14) and we booked with Boots n Paddles on this trip, as we were keen to complete this awesome trail, but we didn't feel confident undertaking it unsupported. Well, we couldn't have made a better decision! Mike was our guide for the trip and he did everything possible to... More

Just home from a fantastic trip along the Great Glen. My expectations were exceeded in terms of the whole experience from start to finish. From my initial enquiry about the trip to being dropped off at the end nothing was too much trouble for Mike and his staff. Throughout the trip we were consulted on the options available for each...

We had a fantastic four days of canoeing down the Spey. Our guide Indiana Dan had thought of everything to make it flow perfectly. A short training session at the start was built on each day to reflect the increasing complexities of the river. Great and ample food each day and night to replace the hard spent calories. Weather was... More

From the outset of booking equipment, to being collected at the end of our trip everyone we dealt with was top notch. Also all the boats and kit hired was of a good working standard. Thanks to all staff for a great trip

Boots n Paddles delivered exactly what they said they would, on time, with a friendly face. Excellent brand new sea kayaks, driver waiting for us at the station to take us directly to a remote spot, then picked up right on time a week later. An outstanding service and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

The equipment was new and of the best quality. The canoe and all the ancillaries was waiting for us at the riverside right on time, and it was picked up right on time. Our numerous plan changes were handled sympathetically and with good humour. All in all, a dependable, experienced and professional company.

Fantastic rental company. A group of us hired canoes for a River Spey descent over the bank holiday weekend. Staff could not more helpful and even met us mid way to replace a canoe that developed a fault. Would definitely rent from again. Thanks guys. Cheers Iain.
