Tweed Valley Canoe Trail opening in April 2024

The River Tweed is one of Scotland’s great rivers and is now home to the South of Scotland first canoe trail.
Paddlers can follow the advice/maps provided and paddle approx. 30 miles down the River Tweed in stages passing iconic landmarks, places and people with the stories/history that have shaped this area..

A lot of work has gone into this trail officially launching in April to help make life easy for you and help you make the most of the journey, taking time seeing things/visiting places as well.
Boats can be left at secure stop points overnight or during the day so you can make way to your accommodation/explore the area as well.
We are paddler friendly with an overnight stop point 800m away and a drying room ready for you to dry kit.
Cleikum Mill Lodge at Innerleithen is midway on the route.
If you are a novice then local companies will be on hand to hire boats and guide you down the River. Keep an eye on the promotions or get in touch with us here and read more on the Go Tweed Valley website What a great way to get away from it all……
Cleikum Mill Lodge is superbly located for cycling , walking and exploring the Tweed Valley Forest Park , there are even more paddling options at St Marys Loch a short drive away. Book a room and apartment (choice of two) or the whole building (sleep 10 ) in 5 twin bedrooms.
