Dog Friendly Canoe Trip

Our Dog Friendly Canoe Trip in the Highlands of Scotland along the NC500 is perfect for anyone who wants to bring their four logged friend along on their canoeing adventures. We have loads of experience of having dogs out with us on activities and our canoes have ample room to accommodate them and you.

If you have concerns about your dog falling in the water, we also supply dog friendly buoyancy aids free of charge. These purpose-built flotation devices fit comfortable around your dog with strong webbing straps and they have an easy grab handle should you need to pull your dog from the water.

When we run our activities we like to meet the whole family and that includes your lovable dog, so feel free to bring them along on our Dog Friendly Canoe Trips.

Who can go

Everyone is welcome on the Dog Friendly Cane trip so we do not have an age limit for either human or canine. You do not need to have canoed before (including your dog) and in fact many of our groups (dog included) are complete beginners. So whether you and the dog are a beginner or expert we would love to help you all explore the Scottish Highlands and the NC500 by canoe.
