The West Coast Peninsulas have some of the most beautiful coastline in the UK. The location of this trip will depend on tides and weather conditions, but could involve a day canoeing around Ardnamurchan Point, the most westerly point on the UK mainland.
9.00 am unless otherwise agreed. Tide times may dictate that we need to have an earlier or later start.
Canoes have been used on the sea for thousands of years. This guided canoe trip is suitable for people with previous canoeing experience who want to push the boundaries. Using one of our Hou Prospector canoes (or your own canoe if you prefer) we will paddle on the coastal waters around the West Coast Peninsulas.
If you have previously sailed your own canoe, or been on one of our canoe sailing trips, then we will rig the canoes for sailing using high quality rigs by Solway Dory, giving us the option of sailing, paddling or both, depending on the conditions.
We will plan this full day coastal canoe trip depending on tides and weather conditions, so we may not be able to tell you the exact location of the trip until 24hrs before.
Colin or Katrina will meet you at the Sunart Camping site’s “Bothy”, unless we have agreed to meet elsewhere, where you will be provided with all the essential equipment for this trip. Most of the time, canoeing is a dry pastime but occasionally it rains or people fall in. This is nothing to worry about but please make sure that you have with you the warm clothing described on our kit list. If you have your own drysuit, please feel free to wear that instead of our separate waterproofs.
You will need to bring your own food and drink. Alternatively, if you ask us in advance, we can arrange for a delicious packed lunch to be provided by the Ariundle Centre for an additional cost.
Due to the nature of this trip, we will keep number of participants to a maximum of 3 per guide.
