SCOTLAND KAYAK EXPEDITIONS

“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.`` - Edward Abbey

On the Sunday morning we will be dropped off locally, to set us up for the weeks PLAN.  One of our reasons for starting at Glenuig Inn is the variety and availability of different paddling options.

 

Coll, Eigg, Rum, Muck, Ardnamurchan peninsular and the sound of Mull all within striking distance and some fantastic lochs like Moraig and Shiel to hide in should the weather turn on us.

 

The aim is to be self-contained for the week living from the kayaks finding wild campsites on these remote coastlines.  We will be using Fibreglass Tiderace kayaks supplied by Glenuig Inn or you are welcome to bring your own boat should you wish to.

6 Days Kayaking

5 Nights Camping + 2 Nights B&B

£650 inc VAT

 

Location: Glenuig Inn, West Scotland
