About Argyll Kayaks

Argyll Kayaks is a family-run business with over 25 years experience of kayaking and a lifetime of loving all things 'outdoorsy'. Previously called Karitek, the name was changed to Argyll Kayaks in the spring of 2021 when the timing seemed right for the name to reflect the business' fantastic location here in Argyll.

New name, same great service

Argyll Kayaks is headed up by Ann Shand and her son Stuart Hefron - who both love helping folks to get out there and enjoy the outdoor life.  The company specialises in providing sea kayaks, paddles, kayaking kit and innovative solutions for canoe and kayak handling.

With knowledge and advice stemming from experiences on the water over the years, Ann and Stuart are committed to providing customers with the high level of friendly service that they would wish to receive themselves.
