Open canoe expeditions
An open canoe expedition will take you back to a time before roads when the best way to get around Scotland was by water. Of course we've got roads now - lot's of them! - but all the more reason to get away from them with an open canoe trip through some of Scotland's wildest and most beautiful landscapes.
