About This Guide

I have been paddling since I was 16 years of age. Living by the sea meant we spent much of our summers kayaking on the ocean. I qualified as a BCU Senior Instructor in 1986.  It is only in the last 5 years that I have formalised my sea kayaking expertise. I now run my own coastal trips throughout the UK but mainly in North West Scotland.
