Water activities

Paddle, swim, sail and more.

While some outdoor activities are now permitted as national lockdown restrictions begin to ease, we are urging people to follow Scottish Government guidance to stay local (within five miles of your home) and not  visit the National Park unnecessarily at this time. All car parks and other visitor facilities remain closed. Please also think carefully about the additional pressure your activity may put on local and emergency services at this time. Please stay local 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.
