We have simple access to the water and can advise you on routes, campsites, water supplies etc.

We offer a full hire and outfitting service including all camping and kayak equipment. You can turn up with an airport carry on bag and we can supply everything else you need.

Kayak Hire

If you are a competent sea kayaker and wish to explore some of the breathtaking scenery of the West Coast of Scotland, then you can hire one of our fully rigged sea kayaks.


We have available for hire:

Valley Skerry RMX, Aquanaught Club, Avocet, North Shore Atlantic RM, Venture Kayaks Easky 15, 17 & 17 LV. Each boat comes complete with paddle, spray deck & buoyancy aid.

£40 per set per day


Composite NDK explorer £55 per day


One piece paddle suits can be hired at small additional charge. 

£15 per day.



I do require information about your paddling experience. As the sea can be very dangerous and change quickly I only hire to experienced sea kayakers who have completed specific planning and rescue practice during their paddling career. I would expect competent sea kayakers to have their own VHF radio. I will discuss this when you contact us.


"Thanks again to all of you for your advice on where to go, and especially to Ken for sharing his local knowledge.... all the good advice definitely helped us make the most of those few days!" Steve

Risk Acceptance

Sea Kayak Scotland recognises that sea kayaking is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death. Individuals and groups hiring kayaks should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement. If you are unsure please discuss it with us."The sea is a cruel teacher she gives the exam first and the lesson afterwards"!
