Invertrossachs now has Stand Up Paddle Boards!

Invertrossachs has been kindly gifted a set of Stand Up Paddle Boards in order to expand what we can offer for Water Activities.

Over the coming months the Water and Invertrossachs groups will be looking at how we can offer training for Leaders and working out pricing for groups to book them. 

This is a great addition to the equipment and opportunities we can offer, and great fun too!

And we are back! We have had two very successful socially distanced groups on the water at Invertrossachs in the last couple of weeks.

88th Scouts joined us for an evening paddle last Friday, and 1st Cubs spent a day out on the water on Saturday.


Bell Boat Canoe Kayak


Both groups did a great job of following our protocols to ensure everyone was kept safe, and had a great time!

Whilst we are now into the colder months you can still book water activities down at Invertrossachs - just book with Carla and email Mark or Charlie.
