When you jet ski in Scotland it’s pretty special. This Loch in Dumfries and Galloway is a classic example of how much fun jet skiing can be. Clear and fresh-flowing waters stunning mountainous backdrops and a friendly welcome mean it’s a great place for all forms of watersports.
Measuring in at over 100 acres there’s plenty of room for all sorts of powered watercraft on Loch Auchenreoch too. It’s a busy slipway here with jet skiers and flyboarders all making the most of these Scottish inland waters. This operator runs with a fleet of Yamaha Waverunner XVs the machines that revolutionised the personal watercraft market and the best selling jetski series ever.
These powerful and cleaner running four-stroke jet skis are the sit down models. That means they are really easy to ride. A push of the ignition and the craft starts. After that it’s a case of holding onto the handlebars and using the pull throttle to control your speed. There are no brakes it’s all about applying and lifting off the gas.
All this along with a full water user safety briefing will be explained to you on the loch side by a member of the jet ski team at this Scotland base before you launch. They’ll stay with you to ensure you’re happy and confident at the controls (these jet skis seat two so an instructor can ride out with you if needs be) and once they give you the OK you’ll be free to ride.
Free to explore to whizz up and down start practicing those tight turns and generally have a real hoot on your Yamaha as you run the waves. These jetskis are agile yet surprisingly comfortable and on a fast straight run are very stable too. Basically they are really really enjoyable and you don’t need to be a watersport motorbike or boating enthusiast to ride one.
As well as the quality craft and assured tuition we think the setting for these jet skis in Scotland is a real bonus. You can totally make a day of it here and with The Inn at the Loch serving food on a lovely terrace overlooking the water it’s just a lovely place to hang out. And if you stay until the sun goes down you might just be treated to a spectacular sunset to round off your day of jet skiing near Dumfries.
