If you are new to paddle-sports you’ll be amazed at what a wonderful feeling it is just simply being out on the water.
From taking in beautiful Scottish countryside while enjoying a peaceful paddle on rivers and lochs, to exploring fantastic coastal scenery by sea kayak, the viewpoint from a canoe or kayak can’t be beaten. Places you see on a daily basis will be transformed.
At Loch Insh, we are a BCU registered centre and our instructional staff are qualified to BCU standard or trained in-house. Courses follow the BCU guidelines and standards. We offer a large range of options from starter sessions to guided river tours and BCU courses for individuals or families.

Join our two day introduction to canoeing course. Travel the river from Kingussie to Loch Insh on day one learning the basics.
On day two we take you downstream to Aviemore practising more advanced techniques in the faster flowing waters.
We offer this course in canoes and kayaks or a mixture of both.
The more challenging section of the Spey awaits downstream between Grantown and Aberlour.
Join us for the second section over another two days and we’ll develop your skills further and show you all the techniques required to competently paddle the river while having the maximum amount of fun.
If you are up for the challenge and keen to take on the whole of the river Spey over five action packed days, then get in touch. This trip finishes at the sea some 74 miles downstream from Kingussie. Included in this trip is the opportunity to get back to nature with a full camping experience, stopping at scenic sights along the route along with a distillery visit.
On the final night we’ll take you to traditional Highland pub to experience the best in local folk music and taste a wide range of local whisky!
