White kayak, Poolewe

Calum, Ivan, Max, Grace and young Seb joined me for an afternoon on the water. We had some fun playing games, spotted wildlife and explored some islands and coastline.

Hoed kayak, Mellon Charles

Lillian, Henk and joined me just along from where they were staying at Bliss Haus. We had a beautiful day with blue skies, low winds and sunshine to explore the coastline around Mellon Charles. On our journey we saw a host of bird life, a few seals and an otter munching on a fish.

Alice & Co kayak, Poolewe

Alice, Sofia, Chris and Amelia joined me on a breezy and dismal looking morning, it didn’t take long for the weather to improve with sunshine and calmer winds for us to get onto the water in. We had a trip out to Boor rocks to munch on some seaweed before heading back to the mainland.

Holly & Bob canoe, Poolewe

Holly and Bob joined me on Holly’s birthday for a paddle around. We explored the coastline from Poolewe whilst trying to keep in against the shoreline to be protected from the breeze. Not a bad way to celebrate on your birthday!

Kelly & Jit kayak, Poolewe

Kelly and Jit are having a trip around Scotland and wanted to experience it from the perspective of a kayak. We headed out around Inverewe garden and found a group of seals to watch as they swam about watching us.

Henshelwood kayak, Maree

Julie has been out with me before and we’d tried to get to Loch Maree in the past but the weather didn’t play ball. Today was a great day on the loch, calm waters, low wind and even some sunshine!

Quinn kayak, Poolewe

Isabel and Roger met me for a kayaking trip from Poolewe. It was Roger’s birthday, so this was a great way to celebrate. The wind picked up a little in the session giving us a some little waves to play with.

Jeffrey kayak, Poolewe

Nick and Sarah joined me on a very sunny and calm morning in Poolewe. I’d had to swap things around a bit to fit them in today because I had to cancel on them a couple of days ago because of a mountain rescue callout. I don’t like doing that but if I do then I do like to try to fit folk in at some point if possible.

Hacke kayak, Mellon Charles

Georgia, Sarah and Freddie joined me to explore the craggy coastline around Mellon Charles. They’re staying in Loch Ewe Luxury Pods which is just along the road from where I live, the weather was suitable for paddling from Mellon Charles so we set off onto the sea as close as we could.

Harte kayak, Gairloch

Caroline and Michael joined me as part of their tour around the highlands. The sunshine was lovely to paddle in and the breeze didn’t cause us any issues, we just pushed on through it on our return to the harbour.

Skiffington kayak, Poolewe

Stephen, Kim, Daniel and Fergus came for a kayak around Inverewe Garden this afternoon. The sun shone down on us as we paddled around and the light wind gave our arms a work out on the paddle back.

Buckingham paddle, Poolewe

Mark, Chris, James, Beth and Jack all met me in Poolewe for an adventure on the water. Chris and James went for a canoe whilst the others opted for kayaks. The canoe team decided to take a refreshing dip part way though, it was such a sunny warm day it almost looked inviting enough to join them!

Crawford kayak, Badachro

Amanda, Ed, Archie and Marsaili joined me for another adventure on the water. We’ve been out a lot in the past and often have very very wet sessions with lots of falling in (on purpose I should add). This time we went on the sea kayaks instead of the sit on tops and explored around Eilean Horrisdale.

Raine kayak, Badachro

Katherine, Matthew and Adam met me in Badachro for an explore around the bay. John had planned to join us too but sadly he had to stay on land sorting out their cars tire. They chose the sea kayaks for a change because they’re more use to sit on tops.

Rhodes kayak, Longa

Allison and Will joined me for another paddle, we’ve been most places around here over the years but had never made it over to Longa. We set off with some lumpy, bumpy waves which stayed with us around the south side of the island until we got to the north side. The wind then died back and the seas calmed to millpond levels. With a nice low tide we could spot lots of wildlife around the shoreline. It was so calm we ended up nipping around the island for a second time to explore the areas we hadn’t earlier due to the waves.

Benson Craig kayak, Poolewe

Ben, Beth, Will, Alison, Emile, Luce, Cecile and Oliver all joined me for a busy and fun afternoon on the water. We went off in a mix of sea kayaks and sit on top kayaks to improve our paddling skills, have some fun splashing about, spot some wildlife and enjoy the scenery.
