Aberfoyle, Windsurfing & ...

Aberfoyle is surrounded by lochs and lakes or a single lake to be more precise. The Lake of Menteith, Scotland’s only lake, is a short distance away and although it receives some of the cleanest wind in the region does not boast a sailing or windsurfing club. However, if you have your own equipment there are a couple of reasonable launching spots along the eastern shore.

Loch Ard and Loch Venachar are the main sailing and windsurfing locations. Both boast sailing clubs and offer better access to the water plus decent sites for launching and rigging up. Both Loch Venechar and Loch Ard run west to east and as such the best sailing conditions are created when the wind is blowing from either direction. In northerly or southerly winds things can get a bit flukey. Windsurfers should where a helmet. The sailing clubs provide safety boat cover and changing facilities for paid up customers.
