Woodhouse Smith Kayak, Gairloch

Ruth and Simon met me at Gairloch harbour to explore the craggy coastline and spot wildlife. We had the normal seal sightings as we headed around, the seals being just as interested in us as we were in them. The crystal clear water enabled us to spot lots of tiny spiny starfish along with the occasional huge one.

Rogers kayak, Poolewe

John, Barbara and Jame had some lovely calm weather for their adventure. We set off just across the road from their campsite and explored the coastline around the world famous Inverewe Garden. The water was crystal clear, letting us spot plenty of wildlife below the depths.

Scriven kayak, Badachro

Ray and Nicola were staying on Dry Island and fancied exploring the seas from kayak during their stay. The weather was good for paddling from Badachro, so we set off on the sit on top kayaks on an adventure around Eilean Horrisdale.

Leah and Jamie came paddling around the shores of Inverewe Garden to see everything from a different perspective. As we looked at the amazing scenery seals watched us paddling around.

Alison and Will join me again for another day on the water. It was a bit breezy to do too much today so we spent the time sheltering from the wind by Inverewe and practiced support strokes and rescue skills.
