Knoydart Canoe Expedition

Remote mountains, deep lochs, tragic history and one of Scotland’s finest pubs! A magnificent recipe for a truly outstanding canoe journey suited to more experienced paddlers.

Knoydart is perhaps Scotland’s wildest mountain range, with only one settlement. The remote village of Inverie, which can only be accessed by boat or on foot – something unique in Scotland. Before the clearances Knoydart was home to over 400 inhabitants, most of whom were cruelly removed in 1853. The region is formed by the long sea lochs of Loch Hourn to the North and Loch Nevis to the South. This is a truly remote area with no road access into the central or western areas.

Important Information / Grade & Experience

The Knoydart canoe expedition is a 5 day and 4 night river journey.  By their very nature journeys on the water can be affected by weather and other environmental factors. Your guide/s may have to alter the itinerary to ensure group safety. For a detailed day to day itinerary please click here.

This trip is challenging and is mainly on open fresh water lochs and sea lochs. There is one fairly strenuous portage required. Due to its open waters and position on Scotland’s West coast, this journey is the most exposed to wind of our canoe trips and the route may have to be altered to ensure success. Paddlers should have done at least one previous expedition by canoe or have done an intensive canoe skills training course of 3-5 days duration. If you wish we can help you prepare and get the most from your adventure holiday – prior to your start day we can offer 1 to 5 day
canoe skills courses.
