I thought I’d share this latest update from the Scottish Canoe Association tonight.

As we know there is now a different route that each of the four UK countries is taking to slowly come out of lockdown. We are all desperate to get out on Scottish waters, get paddling activities happening again, and our outdoor businesses open to […]

I’m currently closed for business as dictated to by the UK government but have taken the time to speak directly or via email to everyone booked up to and including 29th April 2020.

It’s so sad to be unraveling all the plans, bookings and hard work put in from what people see as my offseason, […]

Activity Update – 21 March 2020

Activity Update – 15 March 2020

To help participation in the current uncertain climate, for the next six weeks all planned activity booking deadlines have been shortened from 48 hours prior, to midnight/eve of the activity happening.

By shortening the timescale, people can then book at the very last minute to attend. This is to help clients make the decision on their […]

Activity Update – 13 March 2020

Namaste my paddling friends.

Yes, it is affecting us too as a small leisure & tourism business in the Scottish Highlands. After all the months of planning and preparing for the season ahead, a lot of that work is now having to be undone due to cancellations from overseas clients unable to travel.

I do feel sorry […]
