Personal Recommendation

If you're looking to learn how to sea kayak or would like to improve your skills, we recommend Sea Kayak Plockton who can guide you around parts of the Skye coastline.

Taigh Mhuirne is equipped with first class drying facilities plus a secure space to store sea kayaks for the days you choose not to venture out onto the water.
