The Kelly Kettle

Hot Drinks The Wild Way

As part of our trips, we carry a Kelly Kettle, a specialist flask where you light a fire in the middle of it. Within a few minutes the water boils, with a subtle yet  special smokey flavour. When ready, all we need to do is add it to your choice of fresh coffee, selection of teas or our world famous hot chocolate with cream and sprinkles.

What could be more idyllic than landing on an island beach, striking up a fire to brew a cuppa and enjoying a refreshing drink overlooking the wild west coast of Scotland? Also, the smoke is a great deterrent to the humble midge.

Clothing Guide


We now provide footwear, however you may get wet socks. We’d recommend bringing a spare set to wear after our day. 


Swimwear or leggings work well under our neoprene dungarees. Please wear synthetic layers or merino wool. Jeans or cotton are not appropriate.

Top Half:

Synthetic or merino wool layers (no cottons or jeans) to be comfortable to the temperature of the day. It is important to also bring spare warm top layers, just incase you get cold or wet through the day, we will provide you a dry-bag to store these in. There are plenty of options to land during the day to add or remove layers to your comfort.

Other Considerations

Cameras & Phones

Taking electronic devices onto the water, particularly the sea comes with an inherent risk. It is your decision whether you want to take it. We provide dry-bags and optionally waterproof phone cases as part of our tour.


If you are on medication or require medication stops during the day, you must declare this on our booking form. This will in no way affect your booking but  allows our guides to tailor the trip itinerary to include your needs.
