Watersports in Ardroy

Spend a day exploring Lochgoilhead and choose from swimming, canoeing and kayaking.  The splosh involves swimming and swinging your way up the Lettermay Burn which leads to a 4m jump into the splosh pool at the top of the hill. Or sail around the loch in an individual kayak or a canoe with your family and friends. Wet suits and helmets will be supplied for all activities and you’ll be provided with full instructions and support by qualified Ardroy instructors. There are morning and afternoon sessions for each activity. For more information on specific event times, consult the timetable on the Ardroy website.
