4 Day Improver - Stonehaven
When: spring to early summer
Highlights: seabirds, comfortable accommodation, a delicious menu and caves
This 4 day, 3 night trip is based just south of Stonehaven. We'll explore the coast line north and south, discovering hidden caves, deep fissures in the rock and perhaps a surf at the beach in Stonehaven. We run 2 trips here per year, both in the spring giving us the best chance to see the thousands of nesting birds that call the cliffs here home for a few months. We hope to see Puffins, Razor Bills, Guillemots and many more. Enjoy the wildness of this coast line while staying in comfort at one of our small self catering cottages. All meals from lunch on day 1 to lunch on day 4 are included. Join us on this trip if you have already done 2 or more days in a sea kayak.
What's Included: all kayaking equipment, guide at 1:4 ratio, tea and coffee, trip photographs, all meals from lunch day 1 to lunch day 4, shared accommodation
Not Included: transportation to and from start point
Outer Hebrides Expedition
Where: weather dependent
When: summer (August)
Highlights: diverse wildlife, caves, stacks, arches, moderate water & island camping
The Outer Hebrides are like no where else. From miles of golden sand to miles of uninterrupted cliffs, Lewis, Harris, the Uists and Barra have it all. We plan to base camp at a serviced camp site but if the weather is right we'll head out on expedition for a few nights. The remoteness and timeless feel of the "Islands on the Edge" create a superb kayaking experience. We'll fish from our kayaks, scavenge for mussels and barter for fresh fish from the fishing boats. Around every corner there is a new, awesome surprise waiting to blow your socks off.
We leave the locations of this trip till last minute to make the most of the prevailing weather and the state of the tide.
What's Included: all kayaking equipment, guide at 1:4 ratio, fully catered, trip photographs
Not Included: transportation, camping equipment
