Hi everyone, unfortunately Ann was taken into hospital on Friday 10/9/21. She's going to be fine, but it means that the shop will have to be closed for a bit. Online orders will still be processed and we'll reply to emails and phone calls as quickly as we can, but there are likely to be some delays until things get back to normal. Hopefully this will be soon, and we'll post updates as and when we can. Sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime, and thanks for your understanding. Stuart & Ann
Here at Argyll Kayaks our aim is to bring you everything you need to get out on the water - by sea kayak, stand up paddle boards (SUP), sit on top kayaks (SOT) or recreational boat.
A family-run business with over 25 years experience of kayaking and a lifetime of loving all things 'outdoorsy', Argyll Kayaks is headed up by Ann Shand and her son Stuart Hefron, with help from experienced kayaking coach Dave Wilkinson.
Backed by knowledge and advice stemming from experiences on the water over the years, Ann, Stuart and Dave are committed to providing customers with the high level of friendly service that they would wish to receive themselves.
From our shop in Ardrishaig near Lochgilphead in Argyll we sell sea kayaks, recreational kayaks, stand up paddle boards (SUPs) and sit on top kayaks (SOTs).

We have an extensive demonstrator fleet of kayaks, SOTs and SUPs for you to try out on the sea loch here at our base in Ardrishaig and at nearby Tayvallich (Loch Sween) and Carsaig Bay (Sound of Jura).
