Fresh water kayaking on Loch Ederline and Loch Awe
We do have sit on top kayaks for guests staying in holiday cottages only. These can be used on Loch Ederline which has many places to explore upstream and down stream from the loch. There is also an old ice house, walled garden and game larder where the old Ederline House used to stand. There is also a chapel and grave yard on the Island built in 1727.
These are for one person per kayak only. We provide life jackets which must be worn at all times while on the water. It is best to book them the night before use. The hire of a kayak is £20@ for a half day and £25@ for a full day.
Sea and Loch kayaking is an amazing way to explore the glorious coastline of Argyll and the Isles, river and loch networks. With private, deserted beaches, white sands, sheltered sea lochs, the Scottish coastal area around Ederline is a paddler’s paradise.
The local waters offer fantastic kayaking for all levels and there is a number of experienced guides in this area that can help get you started. You could paddle down the historic Crinan Canal – Scotland’s most stunning waterway? For the experienced paddler, the options are endless. Go on an island adventure around the Slate Islands of Seil, Easdale and Insh, circumnavigate beautiful Gigha or wild and lonely Jura, paddle rings around Bute or explore the coves, beaches and pretty seaside villages of Argyll’s coast line, which is longer than the coast of France!
If you want to book yourself into a week-long course or simply get out there for the day with an expert guide, Argyll and the Isles has a number of well-established companies who will be delighted to help.
