Scotland’s coastal fringe was it’s original highway, carried by boat trade and traditions have thrived for generations around our salt sprayed shores. Travelling by kayak offers a unique and quiet perspective to enjoy the wonders our sea has created from shell sand beaches to sandstone archways, wild-life and culture.
The Summer Isles is an archipelago of 21 large islands, 38 including the rocky skerries dry enough to sleep on. Boasting gentle tides and spectacular scenery they offer some of the best paddling Scotland has to offer. There are many caves and archways to explore, tropically blue sandy shallows and enticing beaches. Located in the marine protected zone the islands are a haven for wildlife both above and below the waters. Surrounding the islands Coigach, Annat Bay and Loch Broom host similarly alluring paddling opportunities with a wonderful variety of coastline to explore, whether for a morning of multiple days.
