Had a superb family sea kayaking session with Mike. Very well organised, friendly and knowledgable. Really made an effort to keep everyone happy. The kids (7 and 10) loved it, as did the adults - a great way to see Loch Leven and the surrounding hills from a new viewpoint. Highly recommended and worth every penny.

We had a brilliant half day kayaking with Mark. The scenery is beautiful! It was very well organised and informative. He pitched it at just the right level for us, so it was a really fun thing to do. Would really recommend. Thanks again. Dawn and Derek, Edinburgh

We had a great weekend with Paddle Lochaber in Glencoe. The weather was fantastic, the tuition was excellent (Mark is very patient and adapts to the groups needs and wishes), a really nice group of people to paddle with and eating lunch on a deserted Island (except for the seagulls) was definitely a highlight! Would love to come back for... More

We had a wonderful afternoon trying Stand Up Paddling. Although we were complete beginners we were quickly up on the boards and paddling round the small islands in the loch, with some of the most spectacular scenery in the country as a backdrop. Our instructor was very encouraging and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.

He was very knowledgeable about the local area and the wildlife on the loch, making it stand out from other actives that we took part in whilst away. He... More

We recently did the half-day Introduction to Sea Kayaking trip on Loch Leven and we had a great time. Our guide, Mark, was extremely professional and knowledgeable about kayaking and the area. It was just me and my partner on the trip, and he took the time to correct our kayaking technique and make that we were comfortable with the... More

I booked a half day sit on canoe trip for my partner's birthday, as he had always wanted to try kayaking and this was an introduction. We spent a lovely morning today pottering around Loch Leven with Ali and another couple. After a short safety briefing we headed out, and paddled across half of the lower loch. As there were...
