Open all year offering a wide variety of watersports onsite in the summer and skiing in the winter at nearby Cairngorm Mountain. Lessons many also be taken on our dry ski slope, onsite. Other activities such as archery, mountain biking and local walks are available all year round as are the children's activity play parks. The Boathouse Restaurant onsite is the perfect base to compliment activities, whether you are looking for a warm and cosy environment to have a cup of tea and spectate or requiring a warm, hearty, home-cooked meal to warm up after an activity.

I visited the restaurant / cafe at the centre on Sunday 24th Jan 2015. I had spent the last two days in a bothy in Glen Feshie so the comforts of a cafe were most welcome. I ordered a slice of chocolate cake and a mug of tea. The piece of cake is what would normally be described as a... More

We joined in the fun at the Apres Ski Jam last night and felt compelled to write a review, it was absolutely fantastic! We had the 'raclette' for a part of 8 friends and we amazed by the value for money and high quality of the meal. It was so much fun. We had minute steaks, cheese, chips, salad, bread,... More

Due to a lack of snow on any of the Scottish resorts so far this year we opted to have a couple of hours on the dry slope at Loch Insh. Although I'd never skied on dry slope it went well and we had a good afternoon. It was pretty reasonable prices at £10 for 1 hour or £18 for... More

Hubby and I spent a week in the Tormore cabin in October with my sister and her husband and what a lovely relaxing week it was. We've been in Tormore before so we knew what to expect, although the cabin has been refurbished since our last visit and now has a lovely bi-fold door to make the most of the... More

We regularly visit Loch Insh on our annual trip to the Highlands. This is one of my favourite places to visit. The scenery is stunning. One can participate in all sorts of watersports - paddle boarding, kayaking, wind surfing etc. There are delightful walks around the loch and beach, and a children's play area with a zip wire. The Boathouse... More

I stayed in the main lodge accommodation for two nights while I did my RYA powerboat level two course. Everything was fantastic about both the accommodation and the course itself. The room was really warm, clean and the showers were great, and the bed was comfortable enough - it was great value for money. The course was well organised and... More
