Kayak Camping

From 2021 we’re offering Kayak Expeditions in the South of Skye and surrounding areas.

Pack your tent, a nice bottle of wine and some delicious food into your kayak and go off on an adventure. We will journey along the coast, camp on remote beaches and enjoy the evening sun, have a good night’s sleep and then continue to explore the coast. Does this sound like the kind of thing you would like to do? Come and join us!
