We are Scotland's independent, specialist sea kayak shop owned by sea kayakers, for sea kayakers. We have a huge range of sea kayaks for sale from Valley, NorthShore, P&H, Venture, Perception, Tahe Marine and Epic surfskis.

Oban is Scotland’s premier sea kayaking centre, located only 2 hours from Glasgow airport and you can paddle from our shop around the islands of the Inner Hebrides, or by ferry to the Outer Hebrides.

We run sea kayaking trips and holidays around the Scottish Islands of Mull, Iona, Colonsay, Jura, Islay, Gigha and Lismore using both double and single kayaks. For the rough water sea kayakers, the Falls of Lora are a 5 minute drive and the tide races Grey Dogs and Gulf of Corryvreckan are also possible as day trips.

"The north west of Scotland is quite simply the best place to paddle a sea kayak in the world." - Gordon Brown.

On the north west coast of Scotland and around Skye there are islands galore, hidden beaches, tide races, great places to enjoy the local seafood and amazing people to meet. All of this set within a fantastic, variable culture of Norse and Gaelic influence that go to make this an area you will return to time and again. Ardnamurchan Point to Cape Wrath, the names of the headlands at either end of the area contained within these pages, even have their own section in the weather forecast.

Fifty great voyages are described in a way that is both inspirational and informative. Details of launching and landing sites, tides and potential hazards are provided and the coast is described in exquisite detail. This means that it can also be used as a kayaker's 'pilot' for any journey they might wish to undertake in this area. It follows the successful format of other Pesda Press sea kayaking guides, presenting the information in a user-friendly fashion and making good use of maps and colour photographs.

Doug Cooper has wored at Scotland's National Outdoor Training Centre, Glenmore Lodge, as a Level 5 Coach in Sea and White Water. When not out on the water, Doug can be found in the mountains at work as a Mountain and Ski Instructor or at play in search of new crags or fresh powder tracks. He has sea kayaked extensively around the world and has always got a new destination and adventure planned. Doug is the author of several other books published by Pesda Press.

We are happy to announce that Peak UK's new shoulder-entry One Piece Suit  is in stock. Several years ago Peak introduced their unique leg-entry system, with the Explorer and Creek (now Whitewater), which has been copied but never bettered!  They are hard-wearing and we have been using them in National Kayak School since 2009.  The new   Adventure   suit now offers an alternative to the leg-entry, with a fully waterproof, flexible and curved Tizip 5mm shoulder-entry zip.
