West Coast Canoe Expedition

WEST COAST
CANOE EXPEDITION

by Adventure Solos

OVERVIEW

Perhaps you've already enjoyed our stunning, beginner-friendly Canoe Scotland Expedition. This time, we're heading to the beautiful beaches of the West Coast of Scotland. 

We are on the water each day but this time the itinerary is a tiny bit more relaxed, giving more time for socialising, beachcombing, wild swimming and walks to remote beauty spots and castle ruins. 

In the evening we camp on remote white sand beaches that wouldn't be out of place in the Caribbean. In fact, you can even browse some on Google Earth here! The wildlife can be fantastic too - I've spent time paddling with a Minke Whale in the area in the past, so keep your eyes open for these gentle and majestic creatures. There's also otters, pine martens and seals, so keep your eyes peeled!
