Sea Kayaking around the Islands of Scotland
Experience Sea Kayaking along the coast of Scotland, around islands and in rivers
While sea kayaking in Scotland, you can paddle along the mainland coastline or explore coves around the islands of Scotland, as Arran and Skye (where they make wonderful whiskey). When you are paddling look for otters and seals splashing in the water, and listen to the chatter of marine birds over your head as you pass the ruins of monasteries and castles.
You can take a half day, full day and multiple day excursions. The types of trips vary, from kayaking in the ocean all day and camp one night, to spend the nights in local accommodation. When choosing a trip, ask about playing strength and stamina required for more advanced tours. You are not an experienced paddler? Many operators will spend part of a trip the first day will give you instructions.
