Check out the calendar links for trips happening this season. We operate trips throughout Scotland at a wide variety of stunning locations. Many of the trips are ideal for an introduction to sea kayaking and no experience is required to take part. Please feel free to get in touch should you have any questions regarding a particular trip or location.

If you have a particular area in mind but the dates don't suit please feel free to get in touch as it may be possible to offer you or your group a bespoke trip at your chosen location. We look forward to paddling with new participants as well as returning clients from previous adventures.

About us

Kayak Scotland is based in Aviemore in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. We run kayak trips throughout Scotland, these range from day trips on the Moray Firth to multi day trips on Scotland's stunning west coast, a world class sea kayaking destination.

Kayaking is one of the best ways to experience Scotland's wildlife, these craft allow you to get close to nature, sea birds and other marine wildlife seem to tolerate a sea kayak more than other powered craft allowing for some amazing wildlife encounters.
