A very special wilderness trip, canoeing to a secluded wooded island on the Kyle of Sutherland and camping overnight on it.
Starting in the late afternoon, we will paddle through hidden creeks and around wooded islands to eventually land on a large island in the middle of the river. There we will set up camp with our hammocks and tarps, cook a meal on a campfire and relax to the sounds of the river and the wildlife around us. A good nights sleep will be sure to follow and then we will have breakfast to the sound of the dawn chorus and paddle back to our starting point.
Based in Lairg in East Sutherland we are a small, family-run company running open canoe trips down the Kyle of Sutherland and other Sutherland locations. This slow-moving, easy river with its narrow creeks and wooded islands is ideal for the beginner or anyone looking for a relaxed adventure rich in wildlife, scenery and history. We have several trips to choose from. You can choose from all day trips with a homemade gourmet lunch supplied, a Swallows and Amazons trip combining bushcraft and canoeing, evening wildlife watching paddles or try our special overnight on an island camping special!
