Scotland has long been the land of great sporting opportunities and Scotland’s watersports have been a popular attraction for visitors for many years. With a host of outdoor activities including golf, mountain walking, fishing, and canoeing, there is never a lack of things to do on the remote land. In terms of the seas, there are some truly incredible kayaking adventures available. Some of the best beaches in the country include Inverness, Skye, Mull, and the Trossachs. In the south there are two very popular beaches, Wishington and Moray. With the aid of expert guide services, these beaches make for an ideal destination for a day out.
Types Of Watersports
One of the most popular Scottish watersports, kayaking, can be found in the Trossachs. The Trossachs are a network of canals which link up between the islands of Argyll and Bute. Kayaking enthusiasts of all levels of ability frequent this region due to its perfectly calm and shallow waters and sheltered rocky beaches. It is here that you can sample a wide range of canoes from the smaller, touring canoes, to the much more advanced kayaking models. If you are planning a holiday that takes in a wide variety of outdoor activities, this is a location with which to base your stay.
Of course, the very best part of a Scotland holiday is always returning to the stunning Scottish landscape. When you arrive in the Scottish capital and journey north up the eastern coast you will find an unforgettable experience of the open landscape. From here, you will take in the stunning wilderness of Strathclyde Country Park, and the clergy castles of Inverness.
For a slightly different type of experience, you could consider an official Scotland tour as part of your Scotland vacations. Many of these tours involve hiking, a popular activity in the Scottish Highlands, and a popular activity in and around Edinburgh, as well as somewhere to tie the knot. Depending on where you stay during your time in Scotland, you may even be able to take part in the annual Edinburgh seminar or tour, officially handed down by the Queen of England.
If you prefer something a little quieter than the big open expanse of the Scottish countryside, there are many places in the Scottish centre that can make you truly feel part of the local culture. The historic town of Inverness is a great place to visit, especially if you are able to join a number of guided walks around its many beautiful lochs. For even more tranquil adventures, you can join some of the many white-water canons that run through the centre of the town. Once again, this is a popular activity with people of all ages. Not only does it give a fantastic view of the lochs and islands, but it also allows you to experience the breath-taking scenery of the surrounding area.
Finally, perhaps the most famous attraction in the Scottish Borders is the Scotch Cruise. People from all over the world travel to the Scottish Islands each year to experience the rugged charm and beauty of the islands and its towns. If you are lucky enough to have a nice cruise ship in your port of call, it may also be possible for you to watch a Scotland game or, if you prefer, participate in various activities on board.
If you do choose to take part in any of these on board activities, be aware that the weather on the Scottish Borders can be extreme at times. It can be sunny for long stretches of the day, but at other times the sun can go down as quickly as it comes up! If you want to fully immerse yourself in the Scottish culture and lifestyle, consider booking some time on one of the Scotland watersports centres for a truly memorable holiday.
