Paddle boarding River Day Tours Adventure Itinerary

A full day’s paddleboarding enjoying a journey downriver to explore and enjoy a slower pace of adventure. With a wide selection of stunning rivers to choose from, I am able to select the most suitable sections for you and your group to enjoy and get the most out of.

We will get the day going with an informal meetup at the arranged location, introductions, kit overview, safety talk, and time to go over the plan for the day.

Making sure that we all have some snacks, drinks, and a packed lunch (snacks included – packed lunch is extra) to keep us fueled for the journey.

To get ourselves started on our paddleboarding river adventure, its time for a wee warm-up and skills check to get everyone ready, along with some simple essentials to keep us all safe.

the day just gets better…

Once one the river, we can develop our skills and knowledge to get the best out of the day, exploring different techniques to navigate the river on our standup paddleboards, building our confidence along the way, trying out new techniques, and learning best practices.

Having guided & instructed people on river journeys for 20 years, your safety and enjoyment are my main focus, to inspire and facilitate your adventure, and adventures in the future – by sharing these places and experiences I hope to enrich your connection to nature and the natural world.

During the trip, there will be time for snack stops, photo opportunities, and some amazing places to enjoy our lunch – these trips and tours are to be enjoyed and savored, time to enjoy a slower pace of travel.

By the end of the adventure, I hope to have inspired you to a different view of the possibilities available on your standup paddle board – the adventures are endless.

Rivers in Scotland – Paddleboarding River Day Tours

With such a wide selection of amazing rivers to explore on our paddleboards it is hard to list them all, but below is a shortlist to get the imagination going.

Paddleboarding The River Tay:

The River Tay offers everything from gentle touring on wide beautiful stretches of river with an ever-changing and engaging landscape, to some excellent sections of white water, inhabited by a rich diversity of wildlife from otters and beavers, to all manner of birdlife (heron, dipper, kingfishers and more).

Paddleboarding The River Tummel & Dunnalistair Water:

Starting by traveling through the village of Kinloch Rannoch down the River Tummel we travel towards the open water and natural amphitheater of the surrounding hills and the famous Schiehallion Munro. From small island fortresses to meandering waterways, there is so much to explore on Dunalistair Water, a great way to get out into the wilds of Scotland and reconnect with nature.

Paddleboarding The River Dochart:

The River Dochart is in Perthshire, Scotland. Coming from Ben Lui, it flows east out of Loch Dochart and through the glen of the same name. At Killin just before it enters Loch Tay are the Falls of Dochart. The river is sometimes also considered to be a part of the upper reaches of the River Tay.

Paddleboarding The River Garry & Loch Faskally:

Traveling out of the rocky gorge at the base of the Killiecrankie visitor center (great pools to teach and practice the maneuvering of your Standup Paddle Board), this beautiful stretch of the river takes you through a variety of landscapes and scenic joy, woodlands, rock formations, and pebble beaches to have a rest stop on and enjoy the surrounding countryside. Finishing our adventure with a journey down Loch Faskally towards Pitlochry Dam…hopefully for tea & cake at the visitor center.
