Gold Great Glen Canoe & Sea Kayak Residential

For many of you the final section you may need to finish off the long process to achieving your Gold Award may be the additional residential section.

Here at Mountain Water Expeditions we have put our heart and soul into putting together two amazing gold residentials to fill your needs.

If this is the case, or you just want it out of the way, then why not join us for our five-day Gold DofE Residential up in the Highlands of Scotland. We will be travelling across Scotland in open canoes or sea kayaks. Over the five days we will use the Great Glen lock side campsites and some of the wilder traveller’s rest areas.

The Great Glen Coast to Coast canoe expedition takes in short sections of the Caledonian Canal to link Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness. This residential will see you paddling from the west coast to the east coast of Scotland navigating these magnificent waterways.

Over the course of this trip you may have to contend with big waves, mirror calm waters and some exhilarating sailing, such is the nature of the ever-changing Great Glen.

During this DofE Gold Residential, expert coaching will be provided to help develop your paddling skills. Depending on wind conditions, we may also be able to sail the canoes and kayaks.

Mountain Water Expeditions is a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Approved Activity Provider (AAP) for the residential section of the gold award.
