Will Self

Kayaks, Rainforests, Pre-historic Art
Will has been exploring Argyll since early childhood, much of it by kayak. He runs Wild Argyll, taking bespoke trips by kayak and on foot. In posts he shares his favourite walks and paddles into Argyll's wild places, following in the footsteps of our ancestors.

He says: “Around nine thousand years ago the ice had retreated and the climate was warming. Since then Argyll has been drawing in people in small boats seeking wildlife. Even now we can see the remains of some of their earliest camps. Unsurprisingly they are in the same places as we choose to pull in our kayaks for shelter or for shellfish.'
