Sea kayaking and Oban holidays are the perfect match. The newly opened Argyll Sea Kayak Trail links Oban to Helensburgh with launch spots, parking and lots of 'paddle friendly' tourism businesses along the way. Kayaking is perfect to get up close to wildlife - seals, porpoises, whales, otters and eagles to name but a few! History, with its castles, slate villages, deserted islands. Scenery, as good as the West Coast of Scotland gets, island jewels dotted on a steel blue ocean.
Each year, an increasing number of sea kayakers visit the Oban area for days or weeks to explore the islands of Kerrera, Lismore, Seil, Easdale, Luing, Scarba, Shuna and the Garvellachs as well as numerous smaller ones. Why not try it for yourself when staying at Oban Holiday Home.
