Why Not Make A Day Of It?

The Paddling Film Festival will be held between 5-9pm. Before this we are planning some other events.

  • 11am-1pm Highland Experiences Kayak Sale.

We will be selling off some of our pre-loved kayaks and canoe down by the harbour. More details to follow in the New Year.

  • 2-4pm Green Hive are running a beach litter pick starting from Seamans Hall, near the harbour.

You could even bring your own kayak and go paddling for an hour or two. High Tide on April 6th is at 10.30am, ideal for a launch without too long a carry down the beach.

Main event runs from 5pm – 9pm at Nairn Community and Arts Centre. There will be a bar and food stalls for refreshments at the venue. Click here for further places to eat & drink in Nairn.
