Join a sea kayaking holiday and see Scotland’s rugged coastline from a new perspective.
We offer both accommodation based and expedition style kayaking trips and provide all the specialist kayaking equipment. You’ll enjoy paddling under the expert leadership of our guides, who read the water and ensure you’re getting the most from your sea kayaking holiday. Scotland has 10% of Europe’s coastline, so there is a lot to explore.
If you have only sea kayaked a few times (or never before) then the place to start is with either our Introduction Course or Scottish Highlands trips – beginner friendly paddling in beautiful locations.
For paddlers with at least 5 days previous experience, we off a range of either accommodation based or expedition style trips exploring the most beautiful waters of Scotland’s west coast, from day paddles on wild sea lochs to expeditions to remote uninhabited islands. For accommodation based trips, look for our “Scottish Sea Kayak Trail” trips. If you are looking for your first taste of expedition in a sea kayak the West Coast Explorer is the perfect place to start.
We welcome you to explore the sea kayaking tours we have on offer and hope that you’ll read some of the many reviews our previous travellers have kindly left.

On the basis of this trip and hearing from others, I'd recommend Wilderness Scotland trips. This was the best holiday trip I've had. We developed skills and learned a great deal while having a great time. Thank you.
I have no regrets going on this trip. I wanted to see that part of Scotland, chill out and improve my paddling and came away with all boxes ticked! The trip was well managed on the whole and I would certainly recommend it to anyone considering it.
An enjoyable kayaking experience, The highlight was to be on the water in such beautiful places with stunning views. The guides were fantastic, the tuition great. and overall it was fun to learn to move on a kayak. My second time with Wilderness Scotland.
