The views are filled with the outlines of the Rum and Skye Cullin mountains.

Equipment and kit list
This is a wild camping trip, and you will need to be self-sufficient for the duration of the trips. If you are missing something please get in touch in advance and I’ll try and help. I recommend all kit be packed into small dry-bags (about 5 litres) for going into your kayak hatches. If you haven’t camped from a kayak before I’d be delighted to help and advise.
I’d recommend reading closely my Wild camping kit list for sea kayakers.
