Spey descent

The Spey Descent is one of Scotlands Classic Canoe river trips. Loch Insh flows into the River Spey then all the way to the sea. Why not tackle the whole river with our experienced & professional Canoe guides over a period of 5 days.
Wild Camping on the banks of the river and hearing about the history of the Spey and why it is famous for Whiskey! Maybe even try a dram or two!

Instructors take you from novice to competent paddler over the course of 5 days make lasting friendships along the way.

Boat & equipment hire is available for self guided River Spey descents. Please contact us direct to discuss.

Spey Bay back to Loch Insh Shuttle is £140.00.

"Excellent, shuttle service from Spey Bay. If you are doing the river spey by canoe look no further for shuttle and accommodation." Jeffery Stewart; Google Review 5/5

Try SUP for a challenge

Bored of flat water? Have a go paddle boarding down the easy section from Kingussie for a fun new challenge, great fun with a stiff southwest wind blowing you downstream you hardly need to paddle.

If there's a few of you why not take the jumbo and have a laugh all the way down working as a team for the day. 4 - 5 adults max for the jumbo to work best.

Need a bigger challenge

Paddle boarding
