Sound of Arisaig:
(full or half day option)

Protected by hundreds of small tidal islands known as skerries, Arisaig bay is an ideal spot to begin an adventure. Home to a huge variety of sea and wading birds, colonies of seals and a thriving otter population. Weather permitting, we may journey up the coastline towards Mallaig past the famous ‘Silver Sands’ of Morar whilst taking in stunning views of the Inner Hebrides.

Glencoe/Loch Leven:
(full or half day option)

Loch Linnhe near Glencoe

Located just south of Fort William and right on the doorstep of the UK’s “Outdoor Capital”, Loch Leven has the spectacular mountains of Glencoe and the Mamores crowding in from both sides and offers sheltered bays and outstanding views. A one-way journey is an ideal paddle, with the wind and tide at your back. You can also venture west from here into more open waters and end your journey through the tidal narrows at Corran.

Glenuig Bay: (full or half day option)

The perfect launch spot from where we can head out to feel the Atlantic swell with amazing views out to the islands of Eigg, Muck and Rum, stopping off at one of the beautiful beaches along the way. Alternatively from here we can cross the sound and island-hop all the way into Loch Ailort.

Loch Moidart: (full or half day option)

Full of hidden gems, this loch boasts the 13th century Castle Tioram, the Isle of Shona, and abundant wildlife. There is no end of adventures to be had from here weather it is sheltered or exposed paddling you are after. Tidal planning is required if you are do circumnavigate the whole island and make it through the north channel, but you are rewarded with great views of the small isles and of course stunning white sandy beaches.

Loch Eilt: (half day only)

Easily missed on the spectacular Road to the Isles, Loch Eilt is an inland loch that makes for an ideal ½ day introduction to Sea Kayaking. Its panoramic mountain views are made   even more dramatic by the daily passing of the Jacobite Steam train, which can be viewed alarmingly close from under a bridge on the loch!

Port Appin: (full day only)

Situated between Oban and Fort William this is a journey based around the spectacular Castle Stalker. From the ‘put-in’ you can paddle over to the islands of Shuna and Lismore. This scenic trip offers sheltered water as well as the option of an island circumnavigation before returning back via the ocean bound castle.
