A new opportunity for adventure in one of the world's most spectacular environments has been launched on the west coast of Scotland.
Sea Kayak Arisaig caters for the growing demand among adventure holidaymakers for first-class out-door activities and fun-filled day trips just 35 miles from Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.
Situated in one of the most beautiful regions of the UK, in an area described by National Geographic Traveler Magazine as the ideal setting for the only British entry in the Top 50 Tours of a Lifetime, Sea Kayak Arisaig offers one of the best adventure experiences in the world.
The company is based at the award winning Glenuig Inn on the edge of the Sound of Arisaig, in an area renowned world wide for the 500km Scottish Sea Kayak Trail that runs from the isle of Gigha to the Summer Isles near Ullapool.
“Sea kayaking is next to mountain biking in popularity among outdoor adventurers and the numbers of people looking to try it out is increasing all the time,” said Steve Macfarlane, owner of both Sea Kayak Arisaig and the Glenuig Inn.
“Where better in the UK to try something new or experience such spectacular scenery and wildlife than the Sound of Arisaig. One of the beauties of sea kayaking is that there is no impact on the environment or disturbance to the abundance of marine wildlife.”
The company offers long weekend and mid-week skills development breaks which are run by fully qualified coaches able to teach or lead groups of varying standards from beginners with less than a BCU 4* Leader Award (Sea) or equivalent to experienced kayakers.
Sea Kayak Arisaig can provide a range of top performance composite Tiderace sea kayaks, paddles, spray decks, buoyancy aids, dry tops and all the equipment necessary for a safe and successful adventure, including radios, pumps and tow-lines.
To celebrate the launch of Sea Kayak Arisaig's sustainable tourism adventures the award winning Glenuig Inn is offering residential courses with discounts of up to 20% for either the accommodation or the sea kayak hire, whichever is greater.
Glenuig Inn is an award winning inn dating back to the 18th century when it was once torched by soldiers hunting Bonnie Prince Charlie. Recently refurbished it holds a Gold Grading from the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) for its commitment to preserving the environment and promoting sustainable tourism.
