Absolutely magic afternoon with Rugged Paddle Board. Rob and Kirsty brilliant and helpful instructors. So beautiful gliding round the ancient burial island in Loch Leven amongst seals, geese and eider ducks. Snow on the hills but super comfortable in good wetsuits provided. My first time Paddle Boarding - I’ll be back.
