What to Expect

 

As the cooler autumn breezes set in, the colours of Scotland come to life, join us for our one-off exclusive autumn SUP wild weekend! 


Our base for this adventure is a waterside bunk house, right on the edge of Loch Voil. From here we’ll explore two tranquil lochs by stand up paddleboard, taking in the views of the glen and surrounding mountains.

 

Loch Voil is steeped in history and a location of outstanding beauty, we'll spend the two days exploring this stunning location from the water .

 

This weekend will be fuelled by delicious wild food, all cooked on the open fire. After a day of paddling on the glassy waters of the loch, we'll gather around the camp fire and cook locally source venison burgers*accompanied by a vivid sunset and we'll stargaze all evening. 

 

On Sunday evening, following another day of exploring, we'll head to a great local inn to enjoy some whiskey and fantastic food all sourced from the local farms. 

 

This weekend is about unwinding, reconnecting with nature and meeting some great like minded women!

 

Open to all level paddleboarders, including complete beginners.
