The Scottish sea kayak trail is a great adventure. To paddle the whole route might take several weeks but individual sections can be paddled in much shorter trips.

The 'Lord of the Isles' section runs from Oban to Mallaig; passing through the sound of Mull then round Ardnamurchan point and up through the sound of Arisaig before passing Arisaig village en route to Mallaig. We can provideĀ bespoke sea kayak expeditions if you wish to tackle this part of the trail.

For more information on the trail and its guidebook.


The trail traverses much of the West coast of Scotland and there is a chance you may encounter a rich range of wildlife on the trail.

Highlights include the potential to see basking sharks, particularly off Ardnamurchan point.

Otters, Seals, Eagles and numerous types of sea bird could be seen.

Highlighted Trip: Oban to Mallaig

This trip is a fantastic journey traversing some of the best scenery on the West coast of Scotland.

Leaving from the busy port of Oban, the route passes through the Sound of Mull, a relatively sheltered passage. Emerging from the sound the next challenge is Ardnamurchan point - exposed to wind and swell from all directions this can be a tricky but rewarding headland to round. From Ardnamurchan the route passes through the calm waters of the Sound of Arisaig and finishes in the fishing village of Mallaig.
