Sea Kayak Accommodation in the UK
Our own bed and breakfast, Strumhor is the only B&B in the UK that offers sea kayak guiding, rental and coaching.
But there are some other great places to stay and paddle:
We just love taking people here. Excellent accommodation and a huge variety of trips to do. Close to Arisaig, Moidart and Ardnamurchan.
Ariundle Bunkhouse - Loch Sunart
The Ariundle Bunkhouse is located near Strontian in Sunart. Very comfortable accommodation in the heart of the lovely Sunart Oakwoods. From here we can explore the beautiful and sheltered Lochs Sunart, Moidart and Ailort. In the right conditions we can venture to Ardnamurchan and a short drive will take us to the stunning beaches and skerries of Arisaig
Outfitters and equipment
If you need any equipment or decide to buy a kayak while you are in the area, our friendly outdoor equipment shop can help. Dave Bleazard who owns and runs the shop is an outdoor activist with loads of experience of mountain and water sports, so he is well placed to advise you and carries an excellent range of products.
North Shore Sea Kayaks
If you are thinking of buying a composite sea kayak you should have a look at North Shore Kayaks. They are superb. We have North Shore Shoreline, a Calypso and a Calypso II double kayak of our own.
For handling, performance, features and especially quality, North Shore kayaks are second to none.
Wilderness Systems Kayaks
We use P&H Cappela and Wilderness Systems Tempest Sea kayaks. We don't have any relationship with Wilderness Systems but if you want a plastic sea kayak rather than a composite kayak, the Tempests are excellent and we strongly recommend them.
