Knoydart, often called the last great wilderness, is a peninsula on the West coast of Scotland. Sparesly populated, this area feels wild. Loch Hourn cuts deep into the mainland, opposite the isle of Skye. Steep sided mountains surround the water, giving a fjord-like feel to the area. Travel by kayak offers a great way to float into those hard to reach places to explore.

There can’t be many better ways to watch wildlife than floating around next to them. Kayaking allows you to gain a new perspective on Scotland’s coastal marine, mammal and bird life. We love hearing about the magical experiences of watching dolphins cruise by, otters catching their dinner and seals playing that take place on our trips.
