Whitewater Canoeing on the Avonmore River

While we do not provide whitewater canoeing as an activity at the centre that should not stop groups with the right gear and qualifications from doing so. Lough Dan Scout Centre is an ideal location for people who want to kayak the Avonmore River which flows out of Lough Dan. The river can be accessed at several locations including here at Old Bridge and at other locations further down stream including Annamoe, Trooperstown and Bookey’s Bridge just beyond Laragh. The river flows through some beautiful woodland and has quite a specatular feature in the Jackson’s Falls just above Laragh.
