About the trip

Canoe Loch Maree – A canoe or kayak on Loch Maree and around its islands is a wonderful experience.
• Isle Maree, has the remains of a chapel, graveyard, holy well, and holy tree. Isle Maree also attracted the sick and the insane, who drank from its holy well and plunged into the loch three times in the hope of a cure.
• The same island also contains ancient stands of oak and holly which have been linked with ancient Scottish druids.
• Follow in the footsteps of Queen Victoria
• A major feature of the Loch is the large number of islands which it holds,the larger contain pristine remnants of ancient Caledonian Pinewood. Some of these Scots Pine trees are over 350 years old, and stand on ground which has changed little in the last 8000 years.
