a fantastic experience the whole trip was. Compliments both to

"Just a wee note
from the Orkney contingent to thank you for a wonderful three
We all felt that the trip could not have been better organised
or guided and your knowledge, skill and good company added to
what is an amazing way to travel down a beautiful river.

'The River Spey
Descent was a fantastic experience and one that should be tried
if you ever get the opportunity, the scenery and tranquility
has to be experienced to be believed.
I had never paddled a boat
before, but this did not prove to be a problem because of the
excellent tutoring given by David, he is also very patient if
you make any mistakes.
The hospitality you experience at The
Beeches is absolutely fantastic and is real value for money.
Whilst on the water David provides all the food and believe me
you will not go hungry - some of the meals he cooked on the two
stoves was unbelievable. I recommend a final night at The Beeches
to have a warm shower and some more of Jude's lovely cooking.
All the kit that David provides is a very high standard and I
encourage anyone who has any questions before they go to contact
him and ask. The trip from arriving at the Beeches to going home
was nothing but a pleasure, Dave and Jude make you very welcome.
The cost of the trip is very reasonable for what you get, we
are already thinking of going again next year. If you are in
any doubt about booking a trip - go for it - you will not regret
Thanks again David and Jude for all your hospitality and knowledge
that you shared with us Hope to see you again
