This is a rare opportunity to not only learn or improve your sea kayaking, but find out and be inspired by our geology, as we will be joined by one of our Geo Rangers, who are experts in geology and in delivering it in a fun and easy to understand way!  This is an exiting collaboration with the North-West Highland's Geo Park.  

Over the weekend you will be staying at the wonderful Tigh Usidean, where local Una gives the warmest welcome and the best breakfast, and you have uninterupted views over the entire Summer Isles.  You will also be treated to wonderful local produce in the evenings by the Achiltibuie Garden Duo, Alison and Julie!!!
