Coaches Christmas Canoe Outing


As local providers/coaches, we don't often get a chance to catch up in the environment we work in. A Christmas outing is a great opportunity to catch up with other local coaches and providers working in the area.

Meeting at Explore Highland at 10am, the paddling location will be decided depending on weather and wind direction on the day. Trip will be suitable for your own touring craft (SUP, Canoe, Sea or touring kayak all welcome). Depending on numbers we will share transport, minimise local impact, whilst maximise opportunity to chat. EH minibus and trailer as a minimum ūüôā

Coffee, tea, bacon rolls and mince pies will be provided by Explore Highland, so please RSVP by email - or book in online!

Look forward to paddling with you all!
