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
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.
