We did a 1hr canoe session with David today. I think the 2 1/2 hour one would have been too long for our children (9 & 11) but this was just perfect. We all had a fantastic time and I would highly recommend them.More

Great day to escape the heat on land to the windy shores of Loch Ness. Great guide and a relaxing afternoon paddling round the top end of Loch Ness. Worth doing - a great little trip.
