It’s time to get out on the water, challenge yourself, and have a whole lot of fun in the process!

If you’re interested in Yacht cruising, Dinghy Sailing, Paddlesports, Powerboating or Personal Watercraft (jetskis) then ‘sportscotland Cumbrae’ is for you!

As well as courses in your chosen watersport, we offer Instructor Training, however, we’re not solely a playground for the diehard watersport enthusiast! A variety of individuals and groups, of varying levels, choose to visit Cumbrae and often stay here too, making use of our on-site accommodation. An example of this is the school groups and colleges/universities that visit the centre, seeking an ‘adventure away from home’.

The centre’s position on this idyllic Scottish island means that you’ll be surrounded by safe water, with easy access to the open sea.

Our team of highly qualified instructors are PASSIONATE about what they do and you’ll soon find that their enthusiasm is infectious!
