Kayak Shelter & Facilities

The Community Forest runs along the East Kyle of the Island of Bute and there is no better way to appreciate the Forest than from the water. Working with Argyll and Bute Council, the Community Forest houses facilities for kayakers at the north end of the island near Buttock Point. This forms part of the Argyll Sea Kayak Trail The Argyll Sea Kayak Trail | Paddle Argyll (paddle-argyll.org.uk).


The facilities at the Community Forest are a covered shelter with seating, information board, BBQ/firepit, composting toilet and flat area suitable for a small number of tents. Please take rubbish with you and leave the area as you find it as the Forest is run by volunteers and this area is fairly remote and inaccessible by foot.
