“The North West of Scotland is quite simply the best place to paddle a sea kayak in the world.” – Gordon Brown.

Ardnamurchan Point to Cape Wrath, the names of the headlands at either end of the area contained within these pages, even have their own section in the weather forecast. There are islands galore, hidden beaches, tide races, great places to enjoy the local seafood and amazing people to meet. All of this set within a fantastic, variable culture of Norse and Gaelic influence that go to make this an area you will return to time and again.

Fifty journeys are described in a way that is both inspirational and informative. Details of launching and landing sites, tides and potential hazards are provided and the coast is described in exquisite detail. This means that it can also be used as a kayaker’s ‘pilot’ for any journey they might wish to undertake in this area.

It follows the successful format of other Pesda Press sea kayaking guides, presenting the information in a user-friendly fashion and making good use of maps and colour photographs.

1 review for Skye and North West Highlands Sea Kayaking

  1. 5 out of 5

    :

    Another top quality effort from Pesda Press and Doug Cooper, covering a vast swathe of awesome sea paddling ranging from Cape Wrath in the far NW, south to Ardnamurchan Point, the most westerly reach of Britain’s landmass. Clear and engaging text, lovely photos of lovely places (all with improbably good weather), this is a must-have.
