This stunning sea kayak journey starts out from the fresh waters of Loch Shiel, surrounded by the mountains of Moidart and Ardgour.
On reaching the sea at Loch Moidart, we travel north to Arisaig and Morar, weaving our way through an archipelago containing some of Scotland’s most beautiful and remote beaches. Beyond here we enter the Sound of Sleat which flows between Skye and the remote Knoydart peninsula. The journey ends at Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye.
The Loch Shiel to Skye West Cost Odyssey Sea Kayak journey is a 5 day and 4 night paddling expedition. This trip is challenging and previous paddling experience is required. For a day to day detailed itinerary please click here.
Sea Kayak Grade & Experience
Being mainly on the open sea and large sea lochs does make this expedition challenging. Due to its open waters and position on Scotland’s west coast, this journey is often exposed to strong winds. Paddlers should have completed at least one sea kayak expedition or completed an intensive training course 2 to 3 days duration. We can help you prepare and get the most from your adventure holiday by offering a 1 or 2 day Sea Kayak skills course.
