The Assynt coastline provides a superb playground for all types of water-based activities, be it yachting, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, diving, water-skiing, swimming or just paddling. The beaches are amongst the cleanest in Britain and the water is crystal clear all year round.
Be aware that the sea water can be a degree or two colder than anticipated even during the summer months. Wet-suits are recommended for any activities involving prolonged immersion!
There are slipways at Lochinver & Kylesku that are available for visitors to launch boats from, and many places to access the sea with Kayaks.
