70 Islands - 17 Inhabited
Orkney is a world class paddling destination with often challenging conditions and fast flowing tides for the experienced paddler but, if you prefer, you can nearly always find sheltered waters whatever the weather.
Britain's highest cliffs, really impressive caves, arches and tunnels, miles of sandy beaches, wrecked ships, World Heritage Site status archaeology, teeming with wild life, the Orkney Islands have it all.
During the summer months Club Members meet up on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and sometimes for longer trips at the weekend.
Sea paddles are open to KKC and OSKA Members. Visiting paddlers who wish to join us on a paddle can become Visiting Members for a nominal fee. This will however be at the discretion of the Trip Leader on the day.
