Ardnamurchan offers some superb contrasting sea kayaking; from the exposed trip around Ardnamurchan point to the sheltered bays of Loch Sunart.
Ardnamurchan is a peninsula south of Arisaig - the Scottish mainlands most westerly point. Ardnamurchan point is a great place to travel to, the lighthouse on the point and the nearby Sanna bay offering some of the finest views on the West coast. Its an even better sea kayak trip - it has a wonderfully exposed feel as the view stretches from Coll and Tiree all the way up to Skye. Nearby Loch Sunart is very rich in wildife and a wonderful place to explore by sea kayak if the conditions aren't right for Ardnamurchan point or if you fancy something more sheltered. We can run bespoke sea kayak day trips and we also run an introduction to sea kayaking trip around Ardnamurchan.

Highlighted Trip: An Otter watching trip in Loch Sunart
This trip explores Loch Sunart - a great place to go looking for Otters.
Loch Sunart is a beautful sea loch stretching from Strontian to Kilchoan along the Ardnamurchan peninsula. Its very rich in wildife and is relatively sheltered and is a great place to search out if you want a good chance of seeing some interesting wildlife. The islands of Carna and Oronsay and Loch Teacuis provide a superb area to explore. Sheltered but with some tidal flow as the Loch fills and empties with the tide. Common seals can be seen hauled out on the skerries between the islands and Otters fish in the areas surrounding the islands - signs of their presence can be seen along the shore with the remains of fish and shellfish left on the rocks.
