Canoe on Loch Ness

Home to the Loch Ness Monster, a paddle across the Loch is not for the feint hearted. The Loch is vast in size, stretching from Fort Augustus in the South right up to Lochend in the North with over 20 miles of water waiting to be discovered. The stunning mountainous backdrop as well as the calm water ensure a great time can be had by those of all ages and abilities. If you are short of practice or want any further guidance the team at In Your Element can help provide equipment as well as guided tours.

The surrounding area is also well worth a visit with many small and secluded villages rich in history offering a range of shops and restaurants. The remains of the ever-popular Urquhart Castle can also be explored whilst providing a stunning vantage point allowing views up and down the loch. A stay in a leisure vehicle provides the freedom to explore the local area and pitch up at many surrounding sites.

Dive off the Hebrides

There are many locations to dive off the coast of Scotland, however one in particular sticks out. The Isle of Skye is one of the many Hebridean Islands and is fortunate enough to have a range of underwater scenery including undiscovered wrecks and untouched reefs, all of which can be viewed with ease due to the clean and clear water.
The secluded and quiet island means a trip here is a perfect escape with very few people diving. If you’re there for the underwater wild life, then you won’t be disappointed with sightings of dolphins and many other weird and wonderful creatures a regular occurrence.
