Luxury Picnic and Sea Kayak Experience

Our Luxury Picnic and Sea Kayaking Experience in the Scottish Highlands along the NC500 is for those who love to experience quality local food whilst exploring the beautiful landscape.

Linking up with our friends at the award winning restaurant and farm shop, The Storehouse, we have created the ultimate luxury picnic for foodie lovers. Sourcing only the best local delicacies and combining it with stunning landscapes, we guarantee that your taste buds will love the ultimate Highland food experience.

For this experience you will start your sea kayaking from a local seaside village and head out along the shoreline. We will find a secluded bay or beach at lunchtime where you can enjoy a luxury picnic of locally sourced food such as cheeses, meats and breads as well as freshly brewed tea and coffee. Relax and enjoy the food whilst being surrounded by the finest scenery Scotland has to offer.

After enjoying your luxury picnic we will then sea kayak back to our start. All our sea kayak trips are tailored made to you and you do not need to have kayaked before to go sea kayaking with us.
