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.

The Boathouse Restaurant serves delicious meals from 5.00p.m with a good choice on both adult and children's menus. The staff are pleasant and attentive and the view across Loch Insh is so special (booking is recommended and request a window table if possible)
