Boat Registration

All craft with an engine of any type, including electric outboards, MUST be registered before being taken on to Loch Ken.

Rowing boats, sailing boats, canoes, kayaks and other craft powered only by paddles, oars or the wind, do NOT need to be registered. However, fishing from any of these craft DOES require a valid fishing permit.

Proof of valid insurance must be shown for all boats with engines over 6hp.
