FAQs
WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A CANOE?
You don’t need to worry about this – we will give you a lesson before you go out. They are very stable boats and we won’t let you go out if the conditions aren’t suitable.

WHAT DOES CAMP LOOK LIKE?
The tents are comfortable bell tents which provide shelter for sleeping in camp and each one comfortably fits 4 people. Unless you come as a group of 4 and take over one tent, individuals are split up into single-sex tents at random. They are each equipped with a mattress, rug and storm lanterns. The communal areas consist of 2 large tents for food, yoga and other activities or talks weather depending as well as the stand-alone IGO physio and sports massage tent. There will be 1 or more campfires with bales of straw for seats that create the focal point of camp.

WHAT ARE THE SHOWERS AND LOOS LIKE?
There are portaloos a short walk from the main camp area. We position the location of camp to be as wild as possible which makes it difficult to bring showers into camp but we are always near natural washing facilities eg: A burn, a loch, a lake, a river – you get the idea.
