Scottish White Water Guidebook


In this guidebook you will find descriptions of both well-known classics and little-known gems. It covers the length and breadth of the country and provides something for everyone, whatever the conditions, whether you are an aspiring rapid paddler or an out and out hair boater. With maps, pictures and first hand accounts, here is a guide that captures the spirit of Scottish white water. This is a white water guide and runs are mainly grade 3 and above, although a few classic grade 1-3 sections are included.

The guide has been written and edited by an army of volunteers from the Scottish white water community. Every penny raised will go into the Andy Jackson Fund for Access, and will be used to fund practical projects which enhance access to the rivers we all play on and enjoy. Buying direct at Wet West Paddlefest, or from the AJ Fund website cuts out the wholesalers’ costs and means that your money goes to the fund.
