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.

About Rugged Coast Glencoe

Rugged Coast Glencoe (formerly Rugged Paddleboard) are celebrating our 5th season of lessons, tours and rentals with visitors and locals alike.  Our instructors have spent time living and paddling around the world in Europe, North America and Australasia. Returning to Scotland they recognised that Glencoe and the surrounding area have the character, wilderness and environment to match just about anywhere in the world! Through Rugged Coast they aim to get more people out on the water and experiencing the magic of Glencoe.

With the addition of E Foils for 2022 they hope to allow more people to experience the magic of flying above the water. It is recognised that the local area has so much potential for Wing Foiling and Downwind SUP foiling and the efoils are a great way to accelerate learning and build a community of foilers.
