Kayaking on open water and wild camping for three days

Back by popular demand! Join us on a 3 day guided, and catered, kayak tour of the beautiful Summer Isles and coast of Scotland's north west.

We will venture from our start point into the islands to seek caves, archways and sandy beaches. We should see seals and possibly porpoise and dolphins. We will take the day at our own pace - you do not need to be an experienced kayaker or even a strong swimmer. As part of the day we will take regular pauses on wild beaches and offer the chance to brew a hot drink on a wood fired kelly kettle stove.

In the evenings, we will camp on the beach and enjoy a catered meal with a glass of wine - kayaks give us the chance to carry a little bit of luxury into the islands.

Itinerary

  • Friday 2nd Sept - Breakfast at your own accommodation - 10am - meet guide, who will give out boats and equipment, get paddling, camp on beach with catered meal and wine
  • Saturday 3rd Sept  - Breakfast at camp before more paddling, lunch on beach, paddle camp on beach with catered meal and wine
  • Sunday 4th Sept - Breakfast at camp, paddle, lunch, paddle, return to shore for 3pm.

There is lots of accommodation in the area. The event leader will be staying at a local campsite the night before the event (details below) and you will be welcome to join, but you will be responsible for making your own arrangements. At about an hour north of Ullapool, this is a long way for most of us to travel so if there's interest, there may be opportunity to add some days on to the start or end of the trip to explore the area further on foot. 

How to Book

The cost of this fantastic expedition is £375 for guided paddling, equipment, and food for three days. You will need to book and pay a deposit directly with the provider by emailing will@kayaksummerisles.com and quoting "Outdoorlads" - The guide's website is here.

Please be aware that it is the paying of the deposit that secures your place on the trip or waiting list, rather than booking onto the trip via the OutdoorLads site. Balance payments will be requested by the provider prior to September 2021. 
 

If a waitlist builds up, the provider may be able to Co-opt an additional operator and boats so it may be worth signing up!
