Karitek is heading west, to new premises at Ardrishaig in Argyll in Scottish Canal's new Maritime Hub. Located on the shores of Loch Fyne at the entrance to the Crinan Canal - Scotland’s most beautiful shortcut - the move is part of our plan to serve the broader water sports market, while continuing to provide the very best customer service in all things kayaking.
