    Default Needing a canoe..

    Trying to hire a canoe to take friends on a wee trip next weekend (23rd-24th May) but everywhere I've tried is booked up.

    Planning Loch Sheil area, travelling from Edinburgh area, so have tried the usual suspects of Tiso (Glasgow and Blackford) Stirling Canoes, Brookbank Perth and a place in Fort William (not Nevis) So does anyone have any other suggestions or ideas?

    Thanks

    I don't know if they rent out kit but if they do Loch Eil Outward Bound would be ideal for a Loch Sheil trip.

    PS if you're still stuck I can maybe help you out but if that weekend turns out to be a great canoeing weekend... "I kill you"
    Cheers,

    Thanks for the replies guys and the links.

    Some of them I had tried already, but Rockhopper, who do sea kayak trips and other things have a canoe available, just need to get there* for 08.30

    Big to Rockhopper who supplied us with a hire canoe for a couple of days, very good service.

    Some possibilities may be East Lothian Outdoor Education Centre, now based at Tranent, or Low Port Centre in Linlithgow for future reference.
