We are an outdoor activity outfit run by Mike Dunthorne with bases in Inverness, Aviemore & Loch Lomond. Our main strength lies in being a completely mobile set-up: not being tied to a single base means that we can use the whole of Scotland as our ’workplace’ giving a huge variety of venues, whatever the sport.
Our goal is to help you to discover the fantastic Scottish outdoors in a fun, safe and active way. No prior experience or training is typically needed and we will provide all the equipment you need.
Our client base is hugely varied, ranging from school and youth groups, families or individuals on holiday, to stag and hen parties and corporate groups.
Our instructional staff all come highly recommended by friends in the outdoors and they all share our passion for Scotland. There are endless possibilities for playing in the great outdoors, whether that be chasing an adrenalin rush or relaxing with some tranquil wildlife exploration.
"We decided to paddle the Great Glen whilst on a trip to Scotland the previous year and chose Boots 'n' Paddles to hire our boats from. From the start they proved to be an excellent company, handling our booking and subsequent enquiries efficiently and professionally. The equipment was good and they went the extra mile in providing us with paddles of specific lengths. We had a great time and the experience we had with Boots 'n' Paddles throughout our planning contributed to this. We thoroughly recommend this company to anyone planning their own adventure in Scotland."
