The Team

Kevin Williams
Kevin has been kayaking for over 30 years, first on the river, then on the sea. He is a Level 4 (old system) river coach and a Level 3 (new system) sea kayak coach, which is now called Performance Coach. He is also an Advanced Sea Kayak Leader, formerly known as 5* Leader. Basically, he can deal with anything. Kevin is proud to have been trained by Gordon Brown of Skyak Adventures, and Doug Cooper at Glenmore Lodge, where he occasionally works as part of the team.

He has been kayaking all over the world including Austria, Nepal, India, Greece, USA, New Zealand and of course all over Scotland. He is well known for his excellent camping cuisine made from scratch with fresh ingredients.

Janni Diez
Janni has been sea kayaking for 7 years mainly around Skye and Lochalsh but has dipped her paddle into the sea in Greece and New Zealand as well as on the occasional river. She is Sea Kayak Leader, aka 4* Leader, and UKCC Level 2 Sea Kayak Coach. Janni is also a qualified PE teacher, mountain leader and climbing wall instructor.

Being a Gaelic speaker, she loves interpreting the names of skerries, islands and other places we see when we’re out. She can coach in Gaelic and German as well as English.

Sean Watson
Sean is a student at West Highland College School of Adventure Studies and joined our team this summer. He is a L2 Sea Kayak Coach and Sea Kayak Leader.

Bradley Morell
Bradley joined our team this summer with his dog Theo. He has been kayaking for 16 years and has lead groups around the seas of Northern Scotland. Having climbed and mountaineered all over the world ascending unclimbed summits, Bradley now balances guiding paddling, working as a mountaineering instructor and training to become a Paramedic. He is a Sea Kayak Leader and working on his Sea Kayak Coach and Advanced Leader awards. And holds his MCI and Winter ML awards.

Angus Murray
Angus is a Gaelic speaking islander who hails from the Isle of Benbecula, taking up kayaking with Uist Canoe Club as a youngster. He then really fell for the sport on moving to the Isle of Lewis 7 years ago and joining Stornoway Canoe Club. He spends his spare time paddling to and camping on uninhabited islands and in remote places whenever possible.

Angus has another job as Programme Manager of the Skye Ecomuseum. This makes him a bit of a specialist in the history and diverse environment of the area. Angus started with SSSK in 2020 and has really enjoyed sharing the sport he loves with clients of all ages and experience (and sampling beers from The Misty Bottle after).
