Paddle Aigas Gorge

The Aigas Gorge is part of the River Beauly river system. This lovely relaxed canoeing adventure takes you into a different world. Lush foliage, stunning rock formations set in a gorge environment. Stunning scenery, possibility to spot an osprey & other birds of prey and with a relaxed professional coach/guide, you will certainly have a memorable experience out on the water.
