Great Glen Canoe Trail

The Great Glen Canoe Trail has created a number of short video clips to help you plan and prepare for your Canoe Trail adventure. Pulling together a wealth of experience and knowledge from Nancy Chambers (Glenmore Lodge), Dave Rossetter (Standing Waves) and Donald Macpherson (Explore Highland), these five short videos make it clear the equipment, skills and knowledge needed to take to the water.

We hope you enjoy all five short videos that can be viewed online.

If you run an outdoor organisation or activity centre and able to advertise the Great Glen Canoe Trail DVD to groups and clients, please email us and we can post you out your own copy.

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.
