We went on a morning kayak trip from North Berwick led by George. Somehow he had managed to arrange glorious sunshine and a pod of dolphins and we had a wonderful paddle around the bay. The trips was very well organised so that we felt very safe, but not constrained. Highly reccommended!

An excellent day trip last Sunday with George from North Berwick, around The Bass Rock with a mixed ability group. George is extremely approachable and was happy to share his expert advice on Sea Kayaking, kayak's equipment etc. The kayaks and equipment provided were excellent and this added to the experience. I cannot recommend Dun Eideann more highly! An amazing kayaking experience.

Wow! What a great afternoon. First of all, North Berwick was gorgeous. This was my first time sea kayaking and my first time in a tandem kayak. George clearly went over instructions before we left. He provided invaluable gear to keep us dry and warm. George was open and friendly and had great information to share.
The bird life was incredible! I can now list Puffins as one of my favorite animals! We were fortunate enough to see dolphins and a seal on the way back!

Had a really excellent afternoon kayaking with George, to Inchcolm island. George’s instructions were clear, not overly complicated (we’re beginners!) and we felt very safe. Learnt some historical facts and heard George’s seal impression (8/10). It was a really lovely, chilled afternoon and we’d totally recommend a trip.

My husband and I booked the Historic Sea Kayak to Inchcolm Island and we absolutely loved it. Not only the kayaking experience or the beautiful sea life and scenery. George was very professional and helpful. I learned a lot in three hours and I highly recommend him.
He provided all the necessary equipment required for a safe kayak trip.

I have kayaked in New England, Mallorca and Croatia, but my day out with Dun Eideann was the best yet. I felt supported and safe, got useful tips on how to kayak and the trip, from Silver Sands beach at Aberdour to Inchcolm Island was simply fantastic! we had seals all around us, and also some puffins, which made it very special.
Thanks to George at Dun Eideann for a wonderful day, and an unforgettable experience.

Just want to thank George for the great trip he provided the other day from Aberdour. My husband and son thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and my grandson who was visiting from Ireland had a great time. George explained everything to them, and was extremely helpful. An added bonus was the weather.

Great trip from Aberdour out to Inchkeith. George is a great guide, got us all settled, well equipped and comfortable on the boat.
Excellent to see kids of wildlife and enjoy a lovely day on the water (thanks for booking the sunshine)

Had a great time on the water. Although it was too windy to sea kayak, George was able to adapt and offered us a "Swallows and Amazons" island hopping adventure in Gladhouse reservoir, which went down a treat with my 6yo. George is an excellent, patient instructor and excellent with kids.
