Great Glen Canoe Hire and Great Glen Kayak Hire

Canoe and Kayak Hire For The Great Glen Canoe Trail

Active Highs offer the hire of open canoes and touring kayaks for self guided expeditions along the Great Glen Canoe Trail and Caledonian Canal. We only offer canoe and kayak hire to people that we deem competent enough to be able to look after themselves in a wild environment or are in the company of a qualified or competent group leader. Please see our checklist here prior to deciding whether you should be considering taking on the Great Glen Canoe Trail, Calededonian Canal or other self guided canoe or kayak journey alone and are competent to hire equipment without instruction or qualified leader.

If having read our terms and conditions and guidance on equipment hire and have decided that you would like some pre – trip instruction and coaching please see our canoe and kayak coaching pages or alternatively please see our options for fully guided canoe and kayak trips.
