New stretch target

Amazing! Together we achieved our target of £8,000 and we can't thank you enough!

We can now purchase a trailer and provide a wider range of quality hire boats and equipment. and run sea kayking adventures in and around Shieldaig. This money will also help us with the nitty gritty of business (advertising, office equipment and website costs)

Now you've helped us reach our target of £8,000, we can keep going to £16,000! Any money raised in the overfund target will improve our equipment and capabilities, and means more adventures for you! We look forward to meeting you all on your next trip to the Highlands!

If we reach our £16,000 target we will be able to do the following;

  • Have a fleet of six top quality sea kayaks and six canoes, all supplied with top brand buoyancy aids and paddles.
  • Have a quality hire fleet of four single and two tandem sit-on-top kayaks with top brand buoyancy aids and paddles.
  • Purchase some equipment for dog adventures!
  • Take card payments online and via wireless tablet, making pre booking and hiring boats easier.
  • Advertising beyond leaflets.
  • Have a range of quality fishing equipment, including rods for hire.
  • Have an indoor archery venue for bad weather activities.
  • Hire some extra staff!

Please continue to support us to raise as much as possible towards our little local business :)

Project aim

Shieldaig Outdoor Adventures is a new activity provider and outdoor equipment hire service, on the North West Coast of Scotland.  We aim to provide a range of quality hire equipment for use in the area and to provide personal mountain or sea based adventures for singles, couples, families and groups, as well as dog friendly adventures and skills courses.

About the project

Shieldaig Outdoor Adventures launched in 2015.  Run by Tom Tindale and his trusty sidekicks, Emily and Winnie, we are a friendly and personal outdoor adventure and equipment hire provider, nestled on the shores of Shieldaig in the North West Highlands. 

We currently provide guided hill walking, wild camping, canoeing, archery, bushcraft and bespoke adventures.  We also provide canoe, kayak, and outdoor equipment hire from the shores of Loch Shieldaig.

We have had a fantastic start in 2015 and couldn’t have done it without the support of the local Shieldaig residents and some of the regular visitors to the area. 

      We are now in a position to develop and grow.  We aim to create a business that compliments other businesses in Shieldaig and the surrounding area.  To do this we need to raise some funds to purchase more equipment and some business essentials such as a printer.   We started out from scratch 11 months ago and we now hope to expand our hire fleet to cater for larger groups and add sea kayaking to our list of adventures.  We are also keen to join the 21st century and be able to take card payments, get the website finished, and get some advertising for the local area too! 

Every little helps and we appreciate every donation and even ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ on your social media! We can’t do it without you! 

In return, investors will receive some great rewards where you can discover more below.
