The Magic Of Barra

Lodge Based Tours

Lying on the very fringe of Europe the Outer Hebrides are amongst the most beautiful islands in the world. This string of islands offers fantastic scenery and wildlife, and make for a truly beautiful paddling destination. We will be based on the Isle of Barra, the most southerly inhabited island from where we will explore surrounding islands to discover bays, quiet lagoons and stunning white beaches.

As we slip quietly by in our kayaks we may catch a glimpse of dolphins and basking sharks. We will meet the island resident seals, otters, and a fantastic array of birds. Golden eagles can be spotted soaring over the islands: guillemots, and razorbills nest on the high sheer cliffs, whilst oystercatchers and plovers can be seen picking amongst the mussels and limpets on the seashore.

We will also take time to explore the islands on foot, and climbing the hills gives breathtaking views over the Hebrides, towards Skye, Rum, and beyond. The flowers of the islands are truly beautiful. During spring primroses festoon the dunes, whilst in summer flowers carpet the machair. Today the islands are home to fishermen and crofters and retains a strong sense of community where Gaelic is widely spoken.

** Great for Beginners **

On our trips we use twin and double bedrooms. We do expect guests travelling on their own to share twin rooms (same sex). We would need notice if this is unsuitable, and we will do our best to source a single room (single room supplement would be payable).

How to Book

Available dates for this trip are shown below. Our trips are normally fully inclusive but some of our trips are available on a kayaking-only basis. Where a kayaking-only option is available you will see that price shown and will have the option to choose 'kayak only' on the booking form. For our lodge-based trips the kayaking only option means you are responsible for all your meals and accommodation. For wild-camping trips you will be responsible for providing and cooking your own meals. Please contact us if you require more information.
