Loch Insh History

Clive Freshwater had been a professional footballer with Grimsby Town, Scunthorpe, and Leeds United. He later moved to Scotland to work at Glenmore Lodge by Aviemore as a Sports Instructor. He met his wife Sally at Glenmore Lodge, with them soon planning an Outdoor Centre of their own.

1969 - Clive purchased the Beach at Loch Insh from the local Church. The original name of this Centre was the Cairngorm Canoeing and Sailing School, later becoming the Loch Insh Outdoor Centre.

1970 - Clive discovered the old Village Hall in woodland by the Loch. This soon became the first building for Accommodation.

1973 - Clive began expanding the business with a number of new building added each year for Accommodation and Facilities, leading to the modern Outdoor Centre seen today.
