GGCT Safety Video

Our safety video hopefully will highlight the rescue skills you should be comfortable performing should the need arise. We recommend you practice these in a safe environment with those you plan to paddle. Practising with a loaded craft will also make your pre-trailtraining more realistic. If you are unable to perform these basic rescues, we would suggest you seek instruction from your local club or centre. Alternatively you could join in on a guided trip where a coach will look after your safety when out on the water.

60 miles in 5 days

It is an epic 60 mile (95km) journey crossing Scotland in 5 days and conquering the formidable open waters of Loch Lochy and Loch Ness, a challenge in itself.

From South to North

It is normally easier to paddle the Trail from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the east with the prevailing wind behind you.
