SUP Lessons – Gladhouse Reservoir

Gladhouse Reservoir is one of our favourite locations for SUP lessons. Created in 1879 by the engineer James Leslie the reservoir is located within just a short drive from Edinburgh. Being an enclosed water spot, it’s a superb for learning basics of SUP and progression in a safe environment.

Being an important site for wildlife, it’s important not to land on neither of the two islands. However, it’s a great place to enjoy the nature, plethora of different breeds of birds during a peaceful paddle – since no engine powered vessels are allowed on the water.

If you want to learn how to SUP, work on new skills or improve your paddling technique give us a shout! Our SUP lessons at Gladhouse Reservoir are running 7 days a week – depending on the weather conditions.
