DO I NEED PREVIOUS SUP EXPERIENCE?
No previous paddleboarding experience required for this trip, we'll have a technique lesson before we set off and we'll be paddling at a comfortable pace taking in the beautiful scenery. Gutsy Girl runs monthly SUP session in London, to gain some experience before hand.
WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED?
Flights / Train - You'll pick up some super cheap flights to Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Snacks and Alcohol - We can stock up before the expedition!
Dinner at the Inn, so you can choose what you fancy from the menu!
WHERE WILL WE SLEEP?
We’ll be staying in shared accommodation in a cosy bothy and traditional inn. We do not use MBA Bothies, we have permission from private dwellings on the west coast.
WHAT KIND OF KIT WILL I NEED?
Stand up paddleboards are included. We will provide you with a full kit list, most of it you will likely already have. You need a sleeping bag and sleeping mat for camping this is available to rent too.
CAN I COME ALONE?
As with all our Gutsy Girl events and holidays, we encourage you to come solo! Most women joining the week will be travelling alone, plus there is a Gutsy Girl Host on hand to introduce you to your group. We will also connect you with other women on the trip beforehand, so you can make travel arrangements together and meet up!
IS THERE A HOST?

Super friendly and approachable, she is on hand to take out the intimidation of travelling alone!
