The Great Glen Kayak Experience
The Great Glen runs from Fort William all the way to Inverness. It is one
of Scotland's scenic marvels and needs to be seen to be appreciated.
Here at T.M.M. we have the perfect way to show this outstanding area off,
a 5 day adventure in our inflatable kayaks.
Now the goal will be to leave Fort William (at Banavie) and go all the way
to Inverness, however the aim will always be to ensure you
have a relaxing and fun time when out with us.
Scotland's infamous weather may not always allow us to complete the
whole route but we will always ensure you have a fantastic time and not
put any pressure on our guests to carry on regardless.
Your safety and comfort come first, we will always strive to ensure you
have the best of times and if cutting short a day is in the best interest of
everyone concerned then we will do so. Rushing such beauty just to reach
the end would be a real shame and a missed opportunity.
The Great Glen is not vehicle supported, we carry the kit in our kayaks and there will be a degree of moving the kit between locks, there is no rush to do this and we will all help each other. Note this is a wild camping experience, making camp and camp life involves everyone, there is no butler available and everybody is required to do their bit in and around camp.
This is a challenge, over 50 miles in 5 days seems fairly easy and with the right weather conditions it will be but please remember it is Scotland and sometimes, now and then, we do not get the right weather conditions, your guide will make judgement calls and you may finish early one (or more) days if weather is bad and/or start earlier the next day to make up time or take advantage of the good weather.
Leaving the experience early is possible but at your own expense, our van is booked to meet us at our finish location, wherever that ends up, it will not return until day 5.
