Explore Highland is an outdoor paddle sports company based in Inverness, which offers a range of activities for all ages and abilities. Services include canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddle board experiences. Along with boat and equipment hire, guided trips and skills courses. Experiences are led by Donald Macpherson, local paddle sports expert and coach, who offers a wide range of adventures right here in the Scottish Highlands.
Stand up paddleboarding is a popular water sport, where you use a large, board and a single blade paddle to move across the water. You can paddle on your knees and then progress to standing up when you get your balance.
Inflatable stand up paddleboards (ISUPs) are available for hire at Explore Highland. These can be used in suitable canals, lochs and sheltered coastal waters, but not in rivers. There are also a number of SUP guided sessions and trips to choose from.
Planned open group trips, private group bookings and canoe and paddleboard hire services are available to book on the Explore Highlands website. Either by booking online or filling in the relevant booking form. If you need any help or have any questions you can contact Donald here.
