Equipment rental for experienced paddlers

Outside of our peak season*, we will be hiring canoes, kayaks and paddle boards to paddlers with the skills and experience to explore independently. The ability to self-rescue and rescue others paddling with them is a minimum requirement. We don't check ability or qualifications so you must use your own judgement as to whether it is appropriate for you to head out onto the water.

Short-term hire (3, 6 or 9 hours) must be booked via our website using the links below or through the 'Book now' button and selecting 'Hire'. These will take place on Loch Sunart in Strontian as we can drop you and equipment at the community jetty just two minutes walk from our base.

For longer term hire from two days or more, please use the form below to contact us.

Paddle boards

High quality boards to build your confidence

Look down into the water and the seaweed and wildlife as you glide across the water exploring at a leisurely pace. You may wish for children under twelve years to share a board with an adult throughout.

Sea Kayaks

True independence for all paddlers

We have a selection of kayaks available in different sizes to suit everyone except he tallest or biggest people. As they are all paddled solo, we suggest that only children over 12 years use these - or be prepared to wait for them.

Open Canoes

The better option if you have children

Enjoy the space, freedom and confidence a canoe affords as you journey on Loch Sunart and build your own short adventures. Six years would be a sensible minimum age and we recommend that those under 12 share a board with an adult.

We also are a retailer for Peaty's bicycle cleaners, chain lubes, etc., Michelin inner tubes and tyres and Birzman puncture repair kits. We don't hold many tyres here, but can order them in fairly quickly. Ardgour Ales near the Corran, also stock inner tunes, puncture repair kits and small bottles of chain lube.
