Sea kayaking in The Isle of Skye is well known for its rugged coast and scenic views. It certainly is a popular place for hillwalkers and sea kayakers alike. The weather can sometimes be a wee bit of a challange. However, it is a big island and there is always some place where you can hide from the strong westerlies.

Wildlife in Skye is some of the best at the west coast
Spot some of the many seals, otters or sea birds in the area
Most amazing scenery
Many different places with great sea kayaking locations

e offer 3 star white water river kayaking training and assessments in the Highlands of Scotland. 3 star paddlers should be able to kayak down a grade 2 river with nailing every eddy and playing in some surf wave. Rolling and good rescue skills are essential. Doesn't mean you can't have fun on a river at the same time. The usual rivers to run the training are the river Ness or Spey. For assessments it depends on the group but usually the same.

Please go to the SCA website for more information on 3 star or the syllabus

The 2 Day Winter Skills Course will offer clients the ability to walk in the Scottish in the Winter. You will learn how to walk on snow and ice as well as kicking steps, cutting steps, using your ice axe and crampons. Additionally you will also be able to ice axe arrest.

The 5 Day Winter Skills Course offers the same as the 2 day course but will also equip the clients with navigation skills required in the hills. Since winter navigation is much more difficult than navigation in the summer it will be a skill worth the while learning. The highlight of the course is a 2 day expedition in winter hills with either digging a snow hole or using tents.

Guided walking is also a great option to enjoy the Scottish winter hills. You can walk in the hills with the knowledge that you are safe and sound. Unexplored Scotland offers either one day or 3 day winter hillwalking in the Cairngorms or Fort William and Ben Nevis area. You can also contact the company for bespoke trips.
