Watersports in Glencoe and Loch Leven

Not only are we immersed in spectacular mountain scenery, we are also surrounded by beautiful rivers and sea lochs which ensures we have water to explore at any time of year.

Kayaking and sea kayaking

There is tremendous potential for sea kayaking in the area, from the sheltered Loch Leven out to Loch Linnhe and then further afield to Loch Sunart. 

It does rain occasionally in Glencoe and this can lead to terrific kayaking conditions including the River Etive and the River Coe in spate. Slightly further afield you have the Rivers Spean and Garry. Where’s the water website has the latest river levels for you.

Whatever you’re doing you’re bound to get wet so don’t forget we have a top class purpose-built drying room for your kit!

Powerboating, Rib Rides, Sailing and other small craft

Why not try an exhilarating Rib Ride with Sea Xplorer– choose from 1 or 2 hours onLoch Leven.
