Some useful info on the facilities you can use...
Our loch is the main attraction and is used by many for:
Open Water Swimming
Stand Up Paddleboarding
Kayaking / Canoeing
If you are an active family, have a passion for the outdoors and want a safe place to train or teach your children this is the ideal venue.
A full lap of the loch is around 750-800 meters. The average depth is 1.5 meters with a maximum depth of 2m. Temperatures can fluctuate through the season from early season lows of 10C to highs of 20C (if the sun has been shining for week or two!)
The loch is mainly used for open water swimming as there is a big Triathlon community locally with clubs like Fleet Feet Triathletes and Montrose Triathlon Club using the site regularly for training.
Members can also bring in their own equipment - Stand Up Paddleboards, Sailing, Kayaks are all acceptable along with the appropriate safety equipment.
We also offer discounted member rates for hire of Knockburns Watersport Equipment - click HERE for our price list.
Our Cycle Track...
Our 650 meter tarmac cycle track is used by local cycling and triathlon clubs for training their youth members and adult training sessions.
It's a great way to introduce kids to leaning to ride their bike in a safe environment.
We have a variety of different graded trails suitable for running and off-road cycling.
Why not try out the Robbie Simpson Mile Challenge?
