Sea-Kayaking in Scotland is at its best in the Sound of Arisaig. We travel via Loch Ness to our put-in point near Arisaig where the expedition begins. We prepare the sea kayaks and discuss safety procedures before setting off, kayaking past the dramatic Castle Tioram into the sheltered waters of Loch Moidart. Sea-Kayaking next to stands of Caledonian pines on the shoreline, we set up camp on the magical island of Eilean Shona.
Day Two – Sea kayaking in the Sound of Arisaig, Eilean Shona to Ardnish
After a leisurely breakfast, we continue our sea-kayaking journey to Arisaig. We kayak northwards, with unparalleled views of the famous An Sgurr mountain on Eigg and the Cuillins of Rum. Kayaking across the entrance to Loch Ailort, we head for the Ardnish peninsula and establish camp on the beach at Peanmeanach.
Day Three - Sea kayaking in the Sound of Arisaig, Ardnish to Loch nan Uamh
Today’s sea-kayaking journey follows the coastline of the Ardnish peninsula near Arisaig. We kayak in Loch nan Uamh, exploring its part in the Jacobite rebellion of the 1740’s, before landing our kayaks in a remote bay on the north shore and setting up camp.
Day Four – Sea kayaking in the Sound of Arisaig, Loch nan Uamh to South Morar
One of the joys of sea-kayaking in Scotland is exploring the many islands and skerries which dot our coastline. Loch an Uamh has hundreds of such islands. We enjoy an idyllic day of kayaking along this stunning loch before setting up our final camp on a remote beach in South Morar.
Day Five – Sea kayaking in the Sound of Arisaig, South Morar to Skerries
A challenging day of kayaking as we paddle round a remote headland and into the South Channel of Loch nan Ceall. With superb views out to the Small Isles of Eigg and Rum and seal colonies amongst the skerries, this is one of the best sea-kayaking journeys in Scotland.
Day Six – Sea kayaking in the Sound of Arisaig, Skerries to Arisaig
We sea-kayak our way through the beach-fringed islands that guard the entrance to Arisaig. Trailed by seals and a myriad of sea birds, we kayak into Arisaig harbour and come to the end of our journey. We then travel back to Inverness for the end of this adventure holiday.
