North Coast Sea Tours, situated in the picturesque fishing hamlet Kylesku, in the north west of Scotland, has been awarded our 5-star Quality Assurance Award. 

Our Quality Assurance (QA) Scheme is a benchmark for quality across the tourism industry and operates across accommodation, visitor attractions and food sectors.

North Coast Sea Tours provide a wealth of boating experiences for both visitors and residents alike; from The Old Man of Stoer and Cape Wrath to Handa Island and Sula Sgeir.

Owner Derek Gordon originally founded ‘Go to St Kilda’ in 2013, the only provider at the time offering day and camping trips from Skye to St Kilda. Go to St Kilda’ was also recognised as a 5-Star Quality Assurance award business and previous winner of the ‘Best outdoor activity experience’ at the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards.

Congratulations to Derek and his team on this outstanding achievement. This 5-star grading is a true testament to the hard work and commitment of every staff member and is a glowing example of the quality of experiences on offer in the north west of Scotland.

Chris Taylor, Regional Leadership Director, VisitScotland

We are delighted to receive this award, which we regard as a valuable asset to grow our business providing unique boat tours to Handa Island and remote uninhabited island destinations including North Rona, Sule Skerry, Sula Sgeir and Flannan Islands.
