Rowing (and sculling) takes place from our boathouse with a choice of a 4800m stretch of water to the west (towards Loch Ness) or 2000m to the east (towards the Moray Firth).
We pride ourselves on having the "Best Rowing Water in Scotland". The canal being relatively sheltered, with no tide or stream, no sharp bends, and with little traffic. There is also a good towpath, which makes coaching easier. The fact that crews from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow frequently make the trip North for training gives evidence of the quality of our water. Any other clubs wishing to train here are welcome to do so, contact us and we will help you arrange it.
The club is active the whole year round, training through the winter for the Inverness "Eights Head" in February, and during the rest of the year concentrating more on fours, pairs, doubles and sculls.
You will find experienced rowers and scullers on the canal most days of the week but there are club sessions on Thursdays at 6:30pm (summer only) and Sundays at 10:30am for anyone who wants to 'just turn up'. New members are always welcome.
