During a camping trip to Aviemore I stopped at Loch Morlich to record some drone footage and aerial photos.
Loch Morlich is a freshwater loch in the Highlands of Scotland, it has a depth of 15 metres and measures almost a mile in length by half a mile wide.
Loch Morlich Beach is the highest beach in Britain at 300 metres above sea level. It is usually a very busy venue for watersports.
You can hire boats, canoes & windsurfers as well as book lessons. It is a good place for beginners to learn as the water is generally flat and calm.
I first kayaked at Loch Morlich in 1999. A trout jumped out of the water and landed on my crotch. I’m not sure who got the biggest shock but we both ended up under water. One of us was less happy than the other about this!
