Road Cycling - Outer Hebrides
This was the best cycling trip I've done - perfect combination of cycling scenery, enthusiastic guides, great food, and wonderful companions.

Sea Kayaking - West Coast Explorer
An experience that I will never forget. Blending people who don't know each other into a team, experiencing the beauty of the west coast of Scotland and even getting to like the rain!! An amazing holiday that surpasses expectation.

Sailing and Walking - Knoydart, Skye & The Small Isles
An unforgettable holiday in every sense. Never had such fresh and delicate crabs before on such a wonderful sailing boat in such good company. Thanks to all of you!

West Highlands including Knoydart

  • West Highlands and Knoydart
    The Sound of Arisaig is one of the world’s top destinations for sea-kayaking. Its countless islands and skerries offer a wealth of hidden places to explore and are also home to an abundance of marine wildlife including seals, otters, dolphins, porpoises and even minke whales. One of our recent sea-kayaking groups recorded 26 otter sightings in 6 days!

This region covers a large area stretching from near Oban in the south to Kintail further north. At its heart is the wild Knoydart peninsula and the beautiful Sound of Arisaig coastline – two of our favourite places in Scotland.

This huge playground of wild Scottish land offers something for everyone. The mountains, valleys and coastlines are a walkers paradise. The turquoise water of the coast are perfect for sea kayaking. And the landscape and coastline combine to form the perfect home for Scotland’s most iconic wildlife species. 

Whether you want to walk, hike, sea kayak, sail or cycle, watch wildlife or work on your photography, there are few better places to do so than the West Highlands including Knoydart. A first trip to this beautiful region of the Scottish is rarely the last!
