Welcome to the South Skye and Lochalsh Kayak Club. We are a sea kayaking club based in South Skye and Lochalsh on the west coast of Scotland.
The aim of the club is to encourage young and old to participate in sea kayaking in a safe manner and provide instruction to a high level.
We currently have over one hundred members and have been running for about 15 years. We run the majority of the summer sessions in Kyleakin harbour and under the Skye Bridge, with occasional sessions elsewhere in the area. During the winter we hold training sessions in Kyle swimming pool.
As well as our regular weekly sessions, we also run whole day trips throughout the summer, as well as weekends away, and (most years) a summer holiday!
The club owns a range of sea kayaks, paddles, buoyancy aids, spray decks and cagoules, which have been purchased using club funds and grants from funding bodies. These are available for members to use on regular summer sessions and on most of our trips. We are sorry but the club cannot hire or lend kayaks.
You can find out more about what we do by contacting us. We use email and Facebook to keep in touch with our members. If you want to find out a bit more about what's coming up before you commit to joining, please just get in touch.
