Escape to wild places

We specialise in outdoor experiences tailored to you and bespoke adventure holidays in the remote area of Strontian and Ardnamurchan.

Everything we do emphasises a unique experience rather than an activity. With adventures for novices through to wild camping expeditions as well as family-friendly adventure holidays and luxurious adventure escapes no matter whether you travel by canoe or kayak, on bike or on foot, a memorable adventure awaits you.

We've always done it this way as we just love giving you adventures to remember.

Relax and connect with nature

Our guides know the best, and safest, places across Ardnamurchan to give you time to connect with nature and an adventure to remember.

Tasters

A perfect introduction in three hours

Our short adventures on and around the shelter of Loch Sunart provide opportunities for families, couples and novice adventurers to have a go and experience gentle adventure.

Open Canoe, Sea Kayak, Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) or mountain bike (MTB) with a qualified and experienced local guide.

Journeys

6 hours to reach remote locations

Journey through Ardnamurchan with the aim of spending time travelling by canoes or kayaks, on bike or foot.

Concerned about your ability? Then request a private booking for groups of four or more.

All you need to worry about is what to bring for lunch!

Experiences

A day exploring with locally‑sourced lunch

A day of slow adventures spent exploring remote shorelines, on and off the water. Your local guide will bring fresh locally‑sourced produce and cook you a lunch to remember.

These are private bookings (minimum two people) and will be tailored to your abilities, so you have time to relax, explore and create memories.

Escapes

Weekend wild camping experiences for all ages

Book your family onto an exclusive two-day wild camping staycation and let your guide take care of everything so you can concentrate on spending quality time with the people you love and create memories to last a lifetime.

Give your children memories to last a lifetime; they will thank you!

Explorers

Outstanding accommodation with adventure on your doorstep

Sleep in comfort at our bed & breakfast, Otterburn, where you'll help plan your exploration of the remotest parts of Ardnamurchan and the West Coast of Scotland. Each day will bring more learning, new locations to explore and incredible views to feast your eyes on.

You can also bring a paddling or non-paddling partner with you to share your room and evenings with.

Expeditions

Bespoke three‑ and five‑day adventures in wild places

Our flagship adventure is a circumnavigation of the Morvern Peninsula, but we offer novice adventurers a more bespoke and less demanding experience with shorter expeditions.

Responsible wild camping is integral to all adventures.

Ethical and responsible

We seek to minimise our environmental impact, use equipment made in the UK where possible, or at least British companies, whilst also supporting our communities and local businesses.
