James Hamilton Heritage Park



James Hamilton Heritage Park

James Hamilton Heritage Park is a 4 Star Visit Scotland accredited activity centre. The park features a 16 acre loch which provides beautiful and tranquil surroundings for our exciting range of water sports, from canoeing to windsurfing.  The distance around the loch perimeter path is 1.2 kilometres (3/4 of a mile)

Taster sessions are available so that you can get a feel for various water sports, and both junior and adult courses are provided to help you progress.

The Heritage Park is a Recognised Teaching Centre (RTA) for the Scottish Canoe Association (SCA) and Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and only instructors qualified by the Recognised Governing Body (RGB) are utilised.

Don't panic if water activities are not your idea of fun as there is plenty on offer for those who do not like to take the plunge. Our two adventure playgrounds are also star attractions and there is also a popular fleet of fun boats. We can also offer ornithologists some excellent bird watching opportunities from our bird sanctuary.
