Get out there

If you want to escape to the outdoors for a few days on foot, by bike or in a canoe but don’t have the right gear, Tiso has the perfect solution. With our wide range of hire equipment you can try your hand at a new sport without having to buy the kit first.

We offer a selection of kit to cover all your needs whether it’s a walk in the hills or paddling along the coast. You can choose from one of our packages or just the individual piece of equipment you need. This leaflet outlines all our hire equipment and the shops where it is available.

For more information and to discuss your needs contact our Customer Services Departments at our Outdoor Experiences in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Perth and our Aberdeen store.
