There are a range of watersports activities that you can enjoy at Lochore Meadows. All activities are run by Fife Council’s Outdoor Education team.


Lochore is the perfect setting for learning and improving your sailing skills. Great scenery, sheltered bays and clean water are all the ingredients for a fantastic learning experience. There are courses for kids and adults. The centre is an OnBoard sailing centre, an RYA initiative to encourage young people to try sailing for the first time and provide the opportunity to keep going in the sport.
