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.

Would the real Sammy Otter of Inchmarnock stand up?
There was still a chill wind from the north as we paddled down the west coast of Inchmarnock towards its...
...southerly point. We then turned north into the Sound of Inchmarnock which separates it from its larger neighbour, Bute.
It was like entering another world. The low sun warmed the rocks and in the lee of the land the water ahead was like...
I turned the kayak round to get a last view down the Sound towards Arran. I was just turning again when all of a sudden this...
...little fellow periscoped up beside me.
He was gone in a second but I hope he was the real Sammy Otter of Inchmarnock and not an imposter.
