Safety at Loch Morlich

Safety & Experience

Loch Morlich Watersports has an established reputation for putting safety first.

We are passionate about the benefits of the activities and approaches that we use.

The Centre operates under clearly defined Safety Guidelines and Operating Procedures and Loch Morlich Watersports works to the standards of the national governing bodies.

We also recognise that challenge and adventure entail coping with risk and that accidents and personal discomfort may occur from time to time.

You will almost certainly have to put up with the changeable Scottish weather, you may fall off your mountain bike and when taking part in a watersport you may get wet and cold! Minor cuts, bumps and bruises are not uncommon.

All our clients join our courses on this understanding and are encouraged to participate fully within individual thresholds of challenge. However, at all times, you will also be expected to comply stringently with our safety guidelines and procedures.

Our safety policy places the experience and competence of our staff at its heart and every effort is made to ensure that risk levels are thoroughly assessed, proportional to the abilities of our clients and managed in such a way that fun, enjoyment and learning mark your experiences with us.

The single most important ingredient in delivering good courses is the quality of the staff The activities undertaken are instructed by appropriately trained and qualified staff. We have a wealth of experience in all that we do. Our staff are regularly monitored to ensure that our exacting operating standards are adhered to.

The instructors are understanding, inspiring and welcoming to beginners and will endeavour to make your stay fun.


Loch Morlich Watersports is inspected annually by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority. The Centre is also accredited for instruction by the RYA for sailing and windsurfing and the SCA for Canoeing and Kayaking


However, as with all outdoor activities, there are some physical demands that are inherent in the sport. If you are concerned, please contact the Centre to discuss the course conten
t.

Risk Assement, Opperating Procedures, Insurance, Child Protection Policies etc

If you wish a copy of our risk assesments or child saftey policy - please email the centre on office@lochmorlich.com

However the simplest (and most effective) risk assesment is to ask the question

" Does the provider (Loch Morlich Watersports) have all the required safety measures (including operating procedures and risk assessments), staff qualification and competences and insurance in place. Which body or organisation has verified that these appropriate for the activities. Has an on site inspection taken place, and has this been done in the past twelve months."
