Where you’ll be

Cuan Ferry, Scotland, United Kingdom

Cuan Sound is a tidal stretch between the Islands of Luing and Seil, that connects two very unique Island communities. Both of which are incredibly vibrant and welcoming, and offer a range of different activities. The Island of Luing- the home of the famous Luing cattle and quarries "that roofed the world" -is only a short ferry ride away and hosts the recently opened Atlantic Islands Centre, a cafe and museum full of stories and history of the surrounding islands! This is a perfect base to take a boat trip, cycle ride, or walk around the shoreline if you are not a kayaker yourself! There are also a variety of lovely pubs and cafes in the area if you fancy a more relaxed excursion.
