Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a fantastic morning kayaking. Fraser was very knowledgeable on local wildlife and incredibly patient (one of our group had never kayaked before). We went at a steady pace and enjoyed the scenery and wildlife. Fraser was friendly with a great sense of humour which puts you at ease.

We had a great time paddling on Gairloch with Fraser! The kayaks were easy to use and he was very knowledgeable about natural history and the area. We saw seals and various birds and I got to hold a starfish and a sea urchin in my hands! Definitely recommend this experience.

Fraser is a friendly, knowledgeable, and kind guide. The scenery is gorgeous. We saw lots of marine life including seals, all kinds of birds, and jellyfish. It was a lovely way to get to know some of the natural history and present of the area. I highly recommend Gairloch Kayak Centre!

Thank you Fraser for guiding us through our first ever kayaking experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water even though it was a little breezy and choppy at times you were quick to help us out.
It was amazing to see the colony of seals basking on the rocks and to learn a little about the surrounding bay and area.
Also thank you for the lunch recommendation.

Very peaceful, laid back couple of hours kayaking on Gairloch. No previous kayak experience is necessary really. Fraser made us feel welcome and was very knowledgeable about the Loch and the local wildlife, geology and history. Thoroughly recommended.

I had an excellent time! The weather was nice on the day and not too windy, which was perfect for a nice relaxing trip around. Fraser was great and has a very friendly approach! He does a few stops in between and tells you more about the area, its history, geology, wildlife, etc...I think this is a beautiful add on to the kayaking experience. We also managed to see the seals at the end which I was not expecting at all! Totally recommend :)

We went out with Tilly and she was amazing! She pandered to our every wildlife request and we were lucky enough to see many seals and a huge starfish! Her knowledge of the local area was great and she made sure we were safe at all times!

We, two experienced kayakers, spent a day with Fraser on a full day private tour. Eventho we didn’t need any instructions we got a wonderfull kayaking experience totaling 15 kms route round the islands. Fraser is a knowledgeable guide who showed flora, fauna and history of Loch Maree to us. We are happy to recommend Fraser to any beginner or experienced kayakers.
