You can just about see Loch Insh Watersports Centre while sitting at the breakfast bar in our self catering cottage, which makes it an exciting prospect at breakfast time on a sunny day.

As a 14-year old scout, I (Roger) learnt to canoe here, which was quite a while ago and they’re still going strong. I recently went back with some pals to do a little river kayaking, which was great fun. We were taken by minibus to Kingussie, from where we kayaked back to Loch Insh. Just one recommendation – take the canadian open canoes which are designed for distance rather than the kayaks that are highly manoeverable, but not quite so good at going in a straight line. At least, that was our excuse, and we’re sticking to it.
