Paddle Boarding

Pedal Easy with Tartan Adventure

Choose one of our recommended tours to discover and explore the Highlands. With our programmed GPS Garmin you can just follow the route and enjoy. Ask for a Garmin when you rent our E-Bikes.


Paddle boarding or SUP has become the world’s fastest growing watersport.

Here at Tartan Adventure we want to help fill your days with fun healthy activities and now we are delighted to add paddle board rentals as part of our activities.

The boards are inflatable so can easily be transported to a nearby loch for you to start the fun. We can also arrange transport for you and the board if needed. All boards come with pumps so blowing is not needed (thankfully).

Our boards are all new and very stable which will help you master this sport in no time. It’s actually very easy to pickup which is probably why it’s become so popular.

Paddle boarding can be done on any water, and there are many places close to Inverness where you can enjoy a day with your friends or family. We don’t recommend trying this on a river or flowing water unless you are an experienced boarder. Places close by could be the world famous loch ness or even drive East to the beautiful coastal town of Nairn where you will find white sandy beaches to launch into the sea from.

So if you are looking for an Inverness day trip with a difference then you must try this water activity. A great day with amazing scenery, burning calories on the water with a smile on your face.

Depending on the time and energy you have, we offer half and full day rentals from our office on Church street. If you are a group or a family and would prefer we deliver to your accommodation, then please contact us to get this arranged.

If you are doing some Highland touring such as the NC 500 and wish to have a board or two for a few days, then again just contact us and we will be delighted to accommodate you.

We get asked by many of our customers what are the best things to do in Inverness and we always recommend visiting loch ness. Now we can suggest paddle on loch ness as one of the best things to do from Inverness.
