    If so, this is the place to tell sea kayakers about it. Register, start a discussion, and tell us how you can help people who're thinking about kayaking all or sections of the trail.

    (While constructive criticism is welcome, abuse is not and will be removed.)

    “Sea Kayak Highlands”, based in Arisaig, offer sea kayaks for hire if you’re planning any trips on this indisputably beautiful leg of Simon’s journey. Maybe you just want a bimble along the coast, visit the seals amongst the skerries in Arisaig Bay, or a picnic with “Morag” on Loch Morar (Morag’s the monster – Nessie’s sister). More ambitious trips could be the Small Isles of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna, and it’s only a short hop across to Skye or over to Knoydart for lunch or a climb. Visit our website www.seakayakhighlands.co.uk, or tel. Mike on 07887 522 811. We also have self catering accommodation in Arisaig with stunning views across the sea to Eigg, Rum and Skye, www.achnaskiacroft.co.uk.
