Our aim is to keep you safe and give you a truly inspirational experience. We want people visiting us to have an amazing time, create memories and want to come and visit us again. We have never lived in a place that is so well loved as Arran, and after your time with Otter's Tail we want you to love it as well.
It's hard to beat a day exploring Arran's coast by sea kayak. You get to look at the island from a new angle, and bird and wildlife are less put out by us as we pass silently along. We frequently see seals, otters, dolphin and porpoise, and occasionally basking sharks, all of which are often as curious about us as we are about them. We can guarantee a plethora of sea birds, too, including likely close encounters with gannets, terns, Eider ducks, guillemots, cormorants, shag and waders.
Gorge walking is just immensely fun. We fit you with a full wetsuit, a helmet and a buoyancy aid, and then we all scramble up the river together, challenging ourselves along the way where we come across natural water slides, waterfalls and plunge pools.
Arran's hills may be comparatively small, but don't let that deceive you. They are some of the best jaggedy wee hills in Scotland, with classic ridges joining them together, letting you explore the Island from up high.
Otter's Tail specialises in these more scrambly walks that you might have always wanted to try but weren't quite sure about tackling. Our favourites are outlined on our website, but remember we can run bespoke trips anywhere on the Island. If you've a different day in mind, just let us know.
