Open Canoeing

The open canoe, originating in North America, can be paddled solo, more usually as a doubles crew and occasionally as a family group.  The traditional canoe is one of the most versatile watercraft being equally at home on the calmest loch or in crashing white water.  Beyond Adventure use canoes to introduce clients to canoeing skills on both the Loch and River Tay.

We offer 3 options at our ‘By the River’ location:
