Longcraig is a water activities centre based at South Queensferry (near Edinburgh), Scotland. Each year it enables over 2000 young people from all over the world to experience the thrill and sense of adventure that sailing, kayaking and power boating can offer through two hour taster sessions. The centre provides RYA dinghy sailing and power boat courses as well as BCU accredited kayaking courses. Although it is primarily a Scout / Guide centre, we also welcome other youth organisations and voluntary groups to take part in in our courses or to book sessions. We hope you find this site a useful introduction to what Longcraig can offer, but if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us for more details. We look forward to seeing you in the near future!
