Exploring the Scottish Coastline by Sea Kayak

There's nothing better than taking time to explore Scotlands coastline and multitude of islands by sea kayak. It's a blend of exploration, technique, skill, fitness and most of all, FUN...

It's also a perfect platform for photography both on and off the water and with the development of some great all weather, waterproof cameras, the quality of the images is perfectly respectable.

Join me on some sea kaying journeys over the last few years...

A sea kayaking exploration of the Sutherland Coastline

Island hopping, craggy coastline and white, sandy beaches

17th April 2019

A week away at Easter time, staying at Clachtoll campsite provided a couple of opportunities for sea kayaking journeys along the Sutherland coastline.

Launching from Clachnessie beach, the idea was to paddle across to Eilean Chrona and from there, tuck round the north side of Oldany Island and then to Culkein Drumbeg. From there, the possibilities were to carry on for a while or to return through the channel on the south side of Oldany Island and back to Clashnessie beach.

Leaving Clashnessie Bay and paddling along the rugged coast for a while, soon it was time to head northwards and the short 2km paddle out to Eilean Chrona.

Quinag, one of the iconic Sutherland hills dominated our view for most of the day

There were also plans to paddle around the Point of Stoer and past the Old Man of Stoer, but that was for the following day…!
