Welcome to Edinburgh University Canoe Club!

Whether you’ve never sat in a kayak before, want to test your skills on some of the best white water in the world, or even just fancy honing your banter in the wilds of Scotland, we always have lots happening on both land and water.

If you’re interested in getting involved, you should check out our introduction and where to find us. If you are new to boating altogether look at what to expect on your first river trip, which will hopefully answer any questions you have.

The canoe club is essentially what you make it, but it’s worth noting that most of our current members are into white water kayaking (not necessarily as scary as it sounds... promise!). This isn’t surprising considering the quality of rivers to be found within daytrip distance of Edinburgh in both the Highlands and the Southern Uplands.

We are a very social club and the best way to stay up to date with all that’s happening is to look at our events calendar or join the mailing list.

Turn up as much or as little as you like, the pub is always there and so are we :-)


We hope to see you soon x
