Add a little slow adventure to your staycation

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

Everything we do emphasises giving you a unique experience rather than just an activity and, with a range of adventures for novices as well as family-friendly adventure holidays in canoe or kayak, on bike or on foot, a unique adventure awaits you.

If not, we can create an exclusive adventure tailored to you as this is at the heart of what we do.

We've always done it this way as we just love giving you an adventure 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.


A perfect introduction in three hours

A short half-day session on sheltered Loch Sunart means everyone can have a go at something adventurous: canoe, kayak or bike.

These are generally private bookings and no experience necessary, making these ideal for families, couples and novice adventurers alike. Or they can be kept open and social.

We love both!


6 hours to reach remote locations

Full-day journeys are where we aim to spend as much time as possible outside in order to reach the remotest parts of Ardnamurchan. If you are concerned about the pace, your ability or your children keeping up, make it a private booking and it will be tailored to you.

Or keep it open and make it social.

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


A day exploring with a locally‑sourced cooked lunch

A full day of exploring shorelines, on and off the water, tailored to your speed and abilities as these are always private bookings.

Your guide will meet you at the best location, bring fresh, locally‑sourced ingredients (subject to availability) and cook you a lunch to remember giving you time to relax, explore and create memories.


Weekend family-friendly wild camping experience

Book your family onto an exclusive two-day wild camping staycation and let our guides take care of all the planning, shopping and cooking so you can concentrate on spending quality time with the people you love.

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


Outstanding accommodation with adventure on your doorstep

Sleep in comfort at our bed & breakfast, Otterburn, where you'll help plan each day's exploring to the remotest locations across Ardnamurchan and the West Coast of Scotland. Each day will bring new locations to explore and 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.


Bespoke 3 or 5 day adventures in wild places

Our flagship adventure is a circumnavigation of the Morvern Peninsula in kayaks; but we offer novice adventurers a bespoke and less demanding experience with short expeditions. With responsible wild camping an integral part of these, previous experience of living outdoors would be beneficial for your comfort.

All bespoke adventures are exclusive bookings, tailored to you and would make a perfect staycation for outdoor lovers.
