Recommendations for WW courses / coaches in Scotland

Post by yoshiesque »

Hi!

We're travelling around Scotland for 2 weeks this summer & the wife has granted me a kitchen pass to go paddling for the day! (its been a few years since I was last in a boat)

I'm looking for a coach or group I can paddle a grade III with (I was a competent grade IV paddler)

Any suggestions / recommendations please?

I'd need to hire kit as well.

Places where we stopping to make a days paddle feasible include:
  • Inverness
  • Oban
  • Glencoe
Any help is gratefully appreciated

Thanks in advance,

Duncs

Bruce Joliffe and Jonny Hawkins are both great paddlers/coaches and have dedicated many hours to voluntary roles. They are great guys who deserve paddler's custom.

I can PM you contact details if needed.

Facebook is the place for this type of info.
SWWK Market Place is probably one of the best groups to ask in.

Amazing, thanks Mark!

Apologies for the delay in responding - have just got to Inverness from the orkneys with a poorly car...

If you could PM me their details, that'd be great, thank you.

Just to make it explicit (as you mentioned their voluntary work) I'd be willing to pay for their services.
