Day places not bookable on WebCollect. No question is too daft!

    For Sleeping arrangements you will need to book yourself into the Great Glen Hostel Laggan Lock as the Saddle mountain Hostel is Fully Booked. If you are staying in the Great Glen Hostel you will need to provide your own food.

    Club boat hire if you need it is £5 per day (complete form on WebCollect).

    Please make a separate booking for each person attending, rather than buying multiple tickets at the same time. You must be a member (individual or family) of the Inverness Canoe Club to attend.

    We look forward to seeing you on the water!
