North and East Coasts of Scotland Sea Kayaking
A guidebook covering some of Scottish paddling’s best kept secrets.
Forty-five journeys are described in a way that is both inspirational and informative. Details of launching and landing sites, tides and potential hazards are provided and the coast is described in exquisite detail. This means that it can also be used as a kayaker’s ‘pilot’ for any journey they might wish to undertake in this area.
It follows the successful format of other Pesda Press sea kayaking guides, presenting the information in a user-friendly fashion and making good use of maps and colour photographs.
The North and East Coasts of Scotland do not have as many sheltered water options as you might get on the West or in the Islands, and there is always some sort of swell, but if you make the effort you will be richly rewarded, by stunning cliff and coastal scenery, numerous bird colonies, and fascinating fishing villages each with their own history and character.
