one day in October
Nick and I had a wonderful day from Old Dornie Harbour. Jules was friendly, laid back yet professional and our day trip was simply amazing including the gaelic coffee wit a 15 year old malt on the most beautiful beach!
Many thanks Jules.

What a great time our family had on a two day sea kayaking/camping trip with Jules. Our 10 and 8 year old boys considered it the highlight of our tour of the Highlands & Islands and threw themselves in with gusto. Jules was fantastic - nothing too much trouble - and she was great with the boys, getting them involved in lighting fires with flints, fishing with a creel net, putting up the teepee etc. Jules might be a vegetarian but she makes a mean spicy chilli beef and porky breakfast! Seals and moon jelyfish bobbing about the kayaks, noisy oystercatchers and shags, homemade cake and sweets for extra energy. What wasn't there to like. Apart from the rain! Many thanks Jules.

What a fantastic two days!! For my first introduction to sea kayaking it couldn't have been more perfect. Instruction (Tim) weather, kayaks, scenery. I can't wait for next year to do more.
Thank you Jules

Thanks Jules for all your help, organising, planning advice and for the hire of fantastic equipment...not to mention all the little extras that helped make our 3 day trip fantastic, especially the home made cake!
It was an amazing weekend, with rough sea's, strong winds and heavy rain but it all added to the adventure.
See you next year for part 2.

Wilderness Assynt trip, Sept 2012
Dear Jules, with apologies for the delay, thanks for another great trip. Wilf and I booked on the Wilderness Assynt holiday last September. Despite extremely testing weather conditions, the trip went ahead and was a great success. This was entirely due to your fantastic local connections, which meant that we stayed warm and dry in a private bothy rather than camping in the hurricaine, and to Alex, your excellent instructor/guide. We'd hoped for a long kayak journey, but this was impossible because of the stormy weather. Instead we explored a relatively sheltered part of Eddrachillis Bay, received lots of well-judged coaching and learned about the local wildlife. Everything from blue ray limpets to grey seals. Alex inspired confidence, made good decisions in very testing sea conditions and ensured that our time on the water was challenging and fun but never frightening. Given the weather that week, this was quite an achievement! I also had my first experience of night paddling, which was magical. As always, the logistics worked perfectly: the equipment was good, food and drink fantastic and accommodation far exceded my expectations! Thank you to all at Team Jules.
