We are urging people to comply with the national lockdown restrictions and not to visit the National Park unnecessarily at this time. Please stay home and help stop the spread of Covid-19. Find out more about our response to the Coronavirus/Covid-19


There are 22 lochs (and one lake – Scotland’s only natural lake too!) including Britain’s biggest body of freshwater in the National Park, as well as 39 miles of coastline around three sea lochs and many miles of rivers. So getting out and active on the water is easy and a must-do when you’re here.


All levels are catered for. If you’re a beginner or dabbler, there are instructors who can help you with a taster and introduction, and a safe environment to try for yourself. If you’re more of an expert, there are plenty of access points to get onto the water.
