We will meet at Killin (Loch Tay) at around 12pm. Having checked weather conditions we will prepare for a day on the water. I will familiarise you with all equipment, including wetsuit, paddle and bouyancy aid. You will be using a kayak or packraft which suit a wide weight range. The river Lochay offers a still and sheltered environment for access to Loch Tay. When we are ready we will adjust foot rests to suit your height and get you comfortable in the kayak. Then its time to get on the water. I offer coaching and guidance but won't bombard you with the technicalities. The best way to learn is to relax and take your time. Loch Tay is surrounded by mountains and offers an impressive backdrop to your experience. There is a lovely beach where we can have lunch. This is a day away from the stresses of daily life. We can then spend more time on the water, check out the scenery and even introduce a game or two. I will take photos so that you can remember your day.
I have thirteen years kayaking experience in Scotland. I was a part of the Scotland slalom squad as a junior. I write a blog about my kayaking adventures (kayakingjourneys.com). Over the past three years ive been on the river for approx 75 days. I have safety and rescue qualifications for both sheltered water and white water. I have a diploma in Sports Science. I also have coaching qualifications in kayaking. I love taking beginner's on to the lochs and rivers of Scotland and am a member of the Scottish Canoe Association. I supply all equipment.

You don't need to be super fit or a great swimmer to try this experience. The spraydeck doesn't need to be worn if it's your first time kayaking either.
