Testimonial

Testimonial

I absolutely loved my time volunteering. There was almost nothing that I could wish to have changed except perhaps having even more sightings, but that would have just been greedy. The boat, people, weather, scenery and wildlife were all I could have hoped for. Ian Brunt, UK

This project is a truly fantastic way to explore the West coast of Scotland. Anchoring each evening in secluded island bays will give you the opportunity to hop ashore and explore the otherwise inaccessible vast beaches, rugged cliff tops and abandoned villages.
