Mountain and Sea Guides is based in Applecross running all year round adventure activity.
Our summer season is split between a variety of sea kayaking trips, all aimed at beginner and intermediate level, and summer hill walking and mountaineering. We run shorter 2hour and half day sessions for people who want a taste of the activity, enjoy time together and to see the true beauty of the area. Alternatively, join a weekend introduction or week long expedition for more experience and more exposure to Scotland's hidden secrets.
In the winter our attention turns firmly towards winter mountaineering allowing a year of seasonally adventurous activities from half day trips to full multi day expeditions. With some of the greatest challenges right on our doorstep and guides who have been working in the area all their lives you'll be guaranteed a week of exhilaration, learning, beauty and self achievement.
Our groups are made up of outdoor enthusiasts from all over the UK and Europe experiencing the best that Scottish mountain and sea based activity has to offer. We're fortunate to be based in the most varied part of the Highlands benefiting from the gulf stream and a geological history which has created skylines and seascapes which make Applecross and Wester Ross an outdoor adventurers playground. We can cater for groups of friends and families to single people who are interested in meeting new people and doing something unique with their leisure time.
Our instructors are qualified within the different disciplines demanded by each type of activity. As such we are governed by the safe practices of the national bodies the British Canoe Union and the UKMTA, AMI. Our staff have up to the minute wilderness first aid training and certification and Mountain & Sea Guides has been awarded the Investor in People Award twice, for our commitment to training, working practices and standards.
