Sea Kayaking Holiday from Glencanisp Lodge

Wild Scotland is delighted to announce a fantastic holiday from one of our members, Glencanisp Lodge. Set in the beautiful and remote Assynt, the striking scenery offers unique and invigorating views across Scotland’s most wild landscape. The All- Inclusive stay in the 4* Self catering property offers the chance to unwind to a home cooked local produce breakfast, lunch and 2-course dinner, wine included. Having spoiled yourself then enjoy paddling somewhere with a difference on a guided sea kayak tour. This the ultimate holiday of adventure and relaxation.  See below for more details!

The Magic of Assynt 

All around you the dramatic sandstone peaks of Suliven, Canisp, Quinag, Cul Mor, Cul Beag and Stac Pollaidh stand in splendid isolation over the cnoc and lochan landscape. Your days will be filled with awe-inspiring views of mountains near and far with the distant allure of the Outer Hebrides.  The elements will decide our daily journeys and each trip will be tailored to the needs and wants of the group.

This area is famous for its geology and you will be paddling amidst Scotland’s first Geo Park. Heading south we will explore deserted islands, wild coastlines, natural rock features and white-sand beaches.

We will travel northwards along the rocky coast of Lochinver, past white sandy beaches, arches and caves, where we will fall upon the crofting hamlets of Clachtoll, Clashnessie and Stoer.  This area is steeped in inspiring history and archaeology and on our journeys we will come across the remains of an Iron Age Fort and a meteorite impact site.

On a windy day we may head to a secret island where we will be surrounded by a sea of inquisitive seals.  We may explore the north coast of Assynt which will take us to the remote Eddrachillis Islands & the caves of Calbha Beag.  A trip round the coast still further will lead us into Loch Glencoul, one of the local breeding ground of the ‘common seal’ and to the UK’s tallest waterfall, ‘Eas a’ Chual Aluinn’.

This week will open up many of the magical places Assynt has to offer and leave you wishing for more.


You will be based in Glencanisp Lodge on the Assynt Foundation’s community owned estate.  It is set in its own grounds, 10 minutes from the picturesque fishing village of Lochinver.

Here you can relax in the lodge itself, in the woods or by the loch at the end of the garden,  or go for a gentle stroll in the fresh air of the virtually deserted 44,000 acre estate right on the doorstep.

With all-abilities access and accommodation, plentiful living space and stunning views of the Assynt mountains, Glencanisp is a perfect escape from the modern world.
