Hired two kayaks for a couple of hours. Good paddle around islands then up to Glencoe and round bay. Welcoming and helpful advice about wind and tide conditions.

Had a fantastic time paddling with Sian. Communication leading up to the session was great, the instruction during the session was simple and we ended up with loads of time on the water exploring. one of the highlights of our trip.

Had a great afternoon out on Loch Leven with a couple of paddle boards. The young lady who dealt with us (whose name I can't remember - sorry!) Was really friendly and made sure we knew the basics before we headed out. She was able to give us a few great recommendations of places to check out while we were out on the water. They had changing rooms and provided wet suits and flotation aids, and they were more than happy for us to leave our bags while we were out. Large carpark out front but we walked down to Ballachulish from Glencoe and it was easily done. The shop is attached to a hotel and bar so I'm sure you could stop for a pint once you've finished for the day!

Lovely 2-hour kayak hire. The kayaks, paddles and life jackets are in great condition. We had our own wet suits. The loch at Glen Coe is beautiful. We even saw seals. And it's surreal being able to paddle, ankle-deep, in the middle of the loch, between the islands. The currents on the area of the loch we were in are quite gentle and were very safe the day we went. Highly recommended.

Had a great afternoon paddle boarding. Sian our host was fantastic, very patient and gave us all a great time, we even had time to visit burial island. Great way to spend a few hours on and, in my case in the water...loved it!

Nice easygoing staff. Quite small area, easily covered in 2 hours of kayak. Good material

As two complete novices, we were taken with the idea of Stand Up Paddleboarding. Rob from Rugged Coast took us out in the harbour and showed us the basics and had us both standing in very short order. We then proceeded out onto the lock and around some of the islands. It was so serene, and Rob's gentle instruction was phenomenal. If you are up in Glencoe and want to learn how to use a SUP, then I can't recommend Rob and Rugged Coast Glencoe enough.

I had a great time paddleboarding with a board rented from Rugged Coast. They were lovely people and the whole process was very easy. I'd definitely go to them again if in the area!

Myself and my husband had never paddle boarded before and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Sian our instructor was brilliant at keeping us on the board with help all the way. Would definitely recommend a session with the rugged coast.

What a fabulous experience we had with Rugged Coast Glencoe. Our instructor Sian explained everything clearly and patiently and soon had our group paddling confidently out of the bay and across to the islands where we went ashore and learned about the chapel and ancient gravestones. A bonus was the family of seals sunning themselves on a wee island on our return back to base. We would definitely recommend Rugged Coast Glencoe to anyone wanting to learn to paddleboard, from complete novices to those with a bit more experience - there's always more to learn!

Dear Rob, Ann and I enjoyed our lesson very much indeed. We did not expect to learn to paddle board during our visit to Glencoe, but it turned out to be a highlight. Great fun, thank you very much. Ian and Ann

Hi Chris, thanks so much for taking the time to review. Both sessions were lovely, a real highlight of the season for me! Hope to see the four of you back next summer (and hope Claire is making full use of the wetsuit now it fits!). Siân

We want to say a big thank you to our instructor, Sian, who was brilliant. We had such a fantastic afternoon paddle boarding around the harbour and islands. We even saw seals which was just amazing! Sian was very thorough and super friendly. She made us feel at ease on the boards and we both learned lots. She even took lots of photos and shared them with us at the end of our session. We would not hesitate in recommending Rugged Coast to anyone. We would definitely use them again. Thank you for an awesome experience!
