New Way to Experience Loch Lomond: Pedal and Paddle!

Natalie Miller of Can You Experience shares news of a new guided biking and canoeing experience departing from the beach at Loch Lomond Shores, Balloch -  fun, safe way to experience Loch Lomond with friends or family, or groups.

Pedal and Paddle allows you to enjoy the best of what Loch Lomond has to offer – on land, and on the water. Twenty-three miles long and five miles across at the widest point, Loch Lomond’s 18,000 acres cover the largest area of any lake in Britain. Can You Experience believe that its tree lined shores and mountainous backdrop are best seen on a bike ride or from your canoe.

Start the adventure with your guide by bike and head for a beautiful Country Park. On your way you pass Balloch Castle, and then cycle along the edge of the Loch, and take some time to breathe in the beauty of Scotland’s best local asset – the scenery.  (Depending on the group, they can use the all -natural terrain mountain biking tracks where participants can learn some tricks of this brilliant sport).


Now it’s time to take in the views from the Loch. Never tried canoeing before?  Don’t worry, it’s easy! You will be taught the basic paddle strokes by the qualified instructor. Then you’re ready to join the leisurely trip; leave your cares behind as you paddle gently back to nature.

To complete your Loch Lomond Experience, your guide will chat with you about the Loch, its legends, and the local history. As you continue your leisurely paddle, castles and country houses can be seen, complementing the stunning views towards Ben Lomond and the Highlands beyond.

Tempted?  Price: £35 per person – group size minimum 4. Duration: 2.5 hours. Meeting point: Loch Lomond Shores beach, Balloch.
