According to the traditional children's scout song, one rows the boat, but stand up paddling means you have to stand on the board like in surfing and row like in kayaking. Scottish waterways form a perfect playground suitable for the most versatile and unique water sports. Stand up paddleboarding is something very new, but already quite popular with both locals and visitors. Paddle-surfing is available around Perthshire and Tayside, on the River Almond not far from Edinburgh, on Loch Kinord and Loch Lomond, at St. Andrews in Fife, on the Union Canal, Tay River in Aberfeldy and many other water basins of Scotland. The season runs from March to November.
