ARDERSIER FOR WATER SPORTS

Although the Moray Firth has a deep water channel in the middle used by shipping heading towards Inverness Harbour and the Caledonian Canal, the bay between Ardersier and Fort George is a gently shelving shallow bay which is ideal for watersports.  Opposite the cottage there are two sets of broad steps down to the shore, and there is a useful concrete slipway by the Beechgrove Community garden.  You will quite often see windsurfers, kayakers and kitesurfers using these facilities.

The steps opposite the cottage are ideal for launching canoes when the tide is in.

Ardersier Boat Clubhttp://www.ardersierboatclub.co.uk built a "St Ayles" community boat so that Ardersier can join the other villages in the Scottish Coastal Rowing project.  Their facebook page has great photos of each stage of the boat building and information about the boat club.
