Stand-up Paddleboarding in Scotland

Stand-up paddle boarding, often shortened to SUP, is one of the UK’s fastest growing watersports and is a great activity for escaping the everyday. And Scotland is one of the best places to paddleboard. From the deck of a paddle board, you can see the best of Scotland from a whole new perspective. And being near, on or in water is a great way to improve your health and boost those wellbeing endorphins.
