Welcome to Argyll Kayaks

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.
