Open Canoeing

Open canoes are very versatile and adaptable boats. In the right hands and when suitably equipped with sufficient buoyancy blocks/bags they can be used to tour some of the larger volume white water rivers in Scotland. They can also be used on sheltered lochs and on Scotland’s lowland canals for group and family trips.

Open canoeing includes any of the above although the conditions and environment, the skill and experience level of the paddler and the fitting-out of the boat to meet specific needs will vary from one extreme to the other.

Many Affiliated Clubs and Approved Paddlesport Providers will offer open canoeing as part of their activities.
