Canoeing and Kayaking on : Loch Maree

Paddle Point

It is easy to launch from the jetties by the Loch. Obviously permission should be sought first.

Loch Maree is a special place, and has some rare birds nesting, including great Northern Divers, and access in the past was contentious. It is therefore recommended to speak to the Hotel (01445 760288) and/or Scottish Natural Heritage in Kinlochewe (01445 760254) to find out what areas you may be requested to avoid to avoid disturbing the birds.


Stop off on Isle Maree to search for viking graves, wish tree, & druids circle.

Sandy secluded beach (opposite Maree Hotel)

Wish tree.
Probably THE most beautiful day out canoeing that we've ever had. We gained kind permission from the hotel owner, as MalGrey suggests, and headed for the Islands. Picknicked on a small secluded sandy beach on the main island - Eilean Subhainn, then headed off around the back and on to Isle Maree. A magical place with a (natural?) harbour on the South East side. So much history and mysticism associated with this place. Truly magnificent views. A few waves when away from the islands, but mainly a gentle paddle of around 5 1/2 mikes round trip with stop offs.
Cheers MalGrey for this one.
