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.

You have to hand it to these people at Boots and Paddles: the service is excellent. Our group (usually about 10 - 12 paddlers, some in our own boats) have used B&P for the last few years to hire open canoes and to pick us up end of the Spey Descent. We will definitely use this excellent company again. Friendly... More

We originally went with Snowgoose who hired out the equipment without a way to transport them other than the horrible roof racks. Trailer hire was no longer an option. Boots'n'paddles really went out of their way to help us out letting us hire just the trailer and we will definitely be using them next time. Their demeanour was much better... More
