If you haven’t tried sea kayaking in Scotland before, this short break kayaking course for beginners will equip you with the essential kayaking skills to get you started and ready for longer sea kayak journeys. Based at Upper Loch Torridon in the north-west Highlands, you will benefit from lots of kayaking instruction but also enjoy some of the finest sea kayaking in Scotland as we explore Loch Torridon and the surrounding coastline in this area.

Unlike our other sea kayaking holidays in Scotland which involve wild camping, this trip is based indoors, enjoying comfortable accommodation at a private bunkhouse on the shores of Upper Loch Torridon. It has hot showers, warm beds and a cosy, rustic feel, with a wood-burning stove in the living area. This means that if you get wet in the kayaks, you can be assured that a hot shower and a warm bed await you at the end of the day!

The group size has a maximum of 8 clients so you will receive personal kayak coaching throughout the trip from our highly qualified sea kayaking guide. Scotland is a wonderful destination for sea kayaking holidays, and this short break is the perfect introduction to this fascinating activity, opening up the possibility of joining some of our longer sea kayak journeys in the future.
