What to Expect

 

Join us on our women only stand up paddleboarding experience in the Scottish Highlands. On this 4 day expedition, we'll follow the wild coast line, explore stunning lochs and locations inaccessible only by the water or by foot. 

We’ll be paddling toward to Knoydart, said to be the last true part of wilderness of Scotland, with a population of just 113 people. 

Nestled between Loch Nevis and Loch Hourn, this peninsula is completely cut off from the UK mainland road network, accessible only by boat, foot or SUP. A truly remote and stunning location, it’s ideal for our long weekend in nature. 

Due to the unpredictable conditions and remote and wild location of this trip, this expedition is open to those with previous paddleboarding experience, you must be comfortable paddling for up to 5 hours.

New for 2019, we’ve teamed up fantastic new providers who are experts in wilderness paddleboarding experiences. We’re keeping the client to instructor ratio low, 1:4 to ensure you have the very best service and safety on this wild adventure.

 

 

ITINERARY 

 

DAY 1

 

We’ll meet at Fort William in the morning, perfectly timed for jumping on the night train from London. From here we’ll jump in our mini bus, to our launch site.

After a briefing, kit check and issuing group food, we’ll load our boards for 3 nights in the wild! We provide dry bag, tents, paddleboarding gear, including long john wetsuits. Full gear list below.

We’ll paddle for the afternoon before setting up first camp spot, for an evening with the company of your 7 new Gutsy Girl friends.


DAY 2

 

We’ll continue our expedition towards Knoydart, today we’ll paddle on Loch Morar.

We will portage (take the boards over land) to Loch Nevis where we’ll set up our camp for the night, sleeping under a blanket of stars in this incredible remote location. 


DAY 3

 

Today we’ll paddle on Loch Nevis to Knoydart, accessible only by boat or a 16 mile hike over the mountains...or SUP! This is a stunning location, so tranquil and surreal to be so cut off from the world. The small town has just 113 population, many are artists and craftsmen inspired by their beautiful scenery. 

The town is home to the Old Forge Britain’s most remote pub. On our last night, we’ll tuck into a big dinner in the pub, drink around an open fire before our last night camping under the stars.


Waking up in this tranquil location, we'll have an opportunity to explore on foot or SUP, before jumping on the boat back to Malliag.

From here it’s back to Fort William in time for the sleeper train back to London or heading back towards Edinburgh or Glasgow
