Imagine you are at the edge of the sea on a day when it is difficult to say where the land ends and the sea begins and where the sea ends and the sky begins. Sea kayaking lets you explore these and your own boundaries and broadens your horizons. Sea kayaking is the new mountaineering.

Sea Kayaking St Kilda: the great cave of Geo nan Plaidean
The north coast of Hirta in the St Kilda archipelago is a wild place. Much of it falls sheer into the sea from the heights above and forms the greatest and highest wall of sea cliffs in the British Isles.
After passing Mina Stac we came across the great cave of Geo nan Plaidean. The wall above it rises almost to the summit of Conachair, 430m.
Tony watches Fiona F and Alan entering the cave.
Clark leaves the cave with Mina Stac behind and Stac an Armin, Stac Lee and Boreray on the horizon.
