The Symposium will be based at Sabhal Mor Ostaig (pronounced 'sol more ostaig'), the Gaelic College on the Sleat (pronounced 'slate' rather than 'sleet') peninsula of Skye. The Sleat peninsula is often referred to as 'The Garden of Skye'. A location map is available, click here and for travel directions click here.
With views to Ardnamuchan and Knoydart, Sabhal Mor Ostaig must surely be the most spectacular place to hold any sea kayaking event . Skye is simply a must destination for an sea kayaker with over 600 kilometers of coastline to explore, plenty of inlets, beaches, spectacular cliffs, tide races and as much wildlife as you could ever hope to see.
