Open Canoeing

Hire available anytime

Hire available daily 9:00am - 5:00pm April - November

Canoes allow you to enjoy getting out on the water in comfort and stay completely dry whilst doing so.

Canoes are best enjoyed in pairs, although all of our boats have space for a small one in the middle.
Our 4-man boats are perfect for 2 adults and 2 small children to get out and enjoy the canoeing experience together.

Canoes are a great way to experience the diverse ecosystems around Loch Insh. Depending on wind conditions, you have the option to head north-east of the Centre, exploring the island downstream, keep an eye out for the Osprey nest! Or seek out the canal to the South West and head upstream and explore the the Insh Marshes Nature Reserve.
