Canoe Trail

Lead Partner:
Kirkcudbright Canoe Club

To develop a long-distance canoe trail along the Ken and Dee, running from Dalry to Tongland. The trail will formalise access at safe distances from Hydro scheme infrastructure and also improve access facilities generally for canoes. Eleven sites are under consideration, some requiring simple signage and branding, others requiring infrastructure improvements. This project will allow canoeists to travel along the river channel, gaining a view and access currently inaccessible to land-based traffic. The project is working with Scottish Power and the relevant landowners, and will also work with other river users, such as anglers, to secure maximum benefit for all. 

Status: Project development underway and match funding being sought
