It has a total of 66 islands to explore with a pair of nesting sea eagles which can be spotted as you paddle down the loch if we're lucky.

Beinn Eighe Car Park - Letterewe
Starting off in the car park near Beinn Eighe, we check kit, cover safety procedures then get on the water and run through some basic skills to build confidence. We then set off NW past the foothills of the majestic Munro of Slioch down towards Letterewe where we will be camping for the night.
Lettewewe - Poolewe
We get packed up and get on the water to paddle down past some of the 66 islands where we can stop and check out Isle Maree where legend has it if you had insanity problem you would be taken out to the loch by the priest and bathed in the water for an immediate cure! Off we go in the boats again hopefully spotting the rare black-throated divers and maybe even the white-tailed sea eagle!
You’ll be working up a sweat. Bring along a touch of enthusiasm and a little determination
