Stand Up Paddleboarding

Stand-Up Paddleboarding Scotland's Adventure Coast

Is stand-up paddleboarding most popular water activity on the west coast of Scotland? We think so, and Argyll and the isles genuinely has the most choice of places to get your board out and enjoy the sea or lochs.

Five years ago, you may well have asked what paddleboarding is, but not now! The growth in people owning and renting boards is significant, and Argyll has so many options for both beginners and experts to explore on their SUP.

Loch Lomond is a great place to start with a few beaches and parking offering easy access to the water and SUP hire is available for either a spontaneous moment or the complete beginner.

There are numerous other locations across the region which are suitable, and we will be adding more and more inspirational content and information over the next few weeks and months to ensure you know all the options!

Safety first for the most fun

Please wear a buoyancy aid wherever you SUP, and if paddling along make sure someone knows where you are. Always check the wind forecast before paddling. As a general rule you are safe when the wind is under 10 knots and avoid offshore winds which will push you away from the beach.
