What to Expect

Embark on a scenic journey starting just outside Biggar, meandering down the River Clyde.

Over the course of 3 hours, you’ll float downstream, embraced by the lush countryside.

We’ll pause halfway for a snack break (bring your favorite treats!), before concluding the trip at Wolfclyde.

We provide dry barrels for your belongings and can assist with transport logistics if needed.

The landscape is beautiful, with rolling hills and lush countryside. Expect to see a variety of wildlife such as birds of prey, herons, and perhaps otters. The tranquil waters reflect the beauty of the Scottish Borders, offering a picturesque backdrop to your paddling adventure.

Our trips are all about you, so if you have any special requests for your journey, just let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

Location

The River Clyde offers a picturesque route rich in wildlife, starting near Abington (Wandle) and finishing at Wolfclyde. It’s a perfect way to experience one of Scotland’s longest rivers in a new light.

We will send you the precise meeting point upon booking, but it is just outside of Biggar, on the River Clyde. We will finish at Wolfcyde Bridge, Biggar.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend old clothing/trainers that you’re happy to get a little wet. We also recommend a spare change of clothes, just in case! We also recommend you wear waterproofs. Please bring any snacks and refreshments you might want along the way.

We provide 30-litre dry barrels between two to keep your things dry, and provide all of the canoeing and safety equipment. 

Generally, two people would normally share a boat.

Your group must all be aged 10+ to take part in the river trip. If you have youngsters aged 4+, we recommend taking a look at our loch and canal trips at the bottom of this page, which are suitable for younger paddlers.

We will always try to give as much notice as possible if an activity can’t go ahead. It could be the river is too high for canoeing or we are expecting weather warnings for wind. Sometimes things are out of our control and we may have to cancel with very short notice. In all cases, we will try to offer an alternative activity or location. In the event of a canceled activity by us, you will be refunded if we cannot find a suitable alternative date/time/activity for your group. 

However, it’s worth saying that we will only cancel in the event that it is unsafe to paddle. A bit of drizzle won’t stop us! Please assume the trip is going ahead, unless we contact you to say otherwise. The vast majority of our trips go ahead as planned, come rain or shine!
