IT'S A BREEZE!

WELCOME TO THE LOCH EARN SAILING CLUB

Welcome to LESC where members love to be, valuing the good times spent both on and off the water. We pride ourselves on providing relaxed family sailing and training from a modern and fully equipped facility situated near St Fillans on the north shore of Loch Earn, one of the most picturesque inland sailing lochs in Scotland.

Please note we are a "members only" club and are unable to hire boats or offer training to non-members outside a handful of events such as Training Week every July. If you are not a member, Drummond Estates Trout Farm offer boat hire and launch services in Ardveich Bay on the north shore of Loch Earn. Visit their website for more information.
