Adlard Coles Paddle Scotland is the definitive guide to seeing all the wonders of Scotland under paddle power.
This book is the complete guide to paddling the wonderfully varied waterways, lochs, rivers and coasts of Scotland, compiled by Ally Findlay, a paddleboard instructor and tour guide based in Glasgow. He covers all regions of Scotland, including:
South Scotland, including the coast at Kirkcudbright and Fleet Bay, and inland to Loch Ken, and the Galloway Canoe Trail
Central Scotland, including Loch Lomond and the beautiful Trossachs National Park
East Coast Scotland, including the Forth Bridges
West Coast Scotland, from the coast at Arasaig to lochs and rivers including the amazing Rannoch Moor
Scottish Highlands, which become a magical playground in the northwest following the Inverpoly routes
From short paddles to day trips into the stunning wilderness, this book covers excursions for all occasions and all levels of ability, explaining where to begin and what to look out for. Most are well suited to canoe and kayak, but going further, some are even better explored standing up on a paddleboard, including cross-Scotland routes such as the Shin System.
With beautiful and evocative photography, and clear maps, this is the essential guide to seeing Scotland under paddle power, exploring where to go, how to get there and what to see en route.
