There is plenty of water around Doune and Deanston for recreational use.

The River Teith runs for some 8 miles from Callander and is about 30 yards wide at Doune.  A number of burns exist including Ardoch, Annat, Keltie, Argaty and Dragon to mention just a few. 

There is also an array of beautiful lochs a short drive away including Loch Venachar and Loch Ard which have sailing clubs and Loch Katrine which runs seasonal boat tours.

You can canoe and kayak down the Teith from Torrie to the Teith Bridge. This can be accessed from the old Doune to Callander road (on the south side of the river). You can also canoe and kayak further north in Loch Venacher or Loch Earn.

In bygone days there was a unique water sport called ‘Doune Dooking’ which involved a person who had committed a misdemeanour or crime  being tied and dipped in the water until they repented, whilst singing the Doune Dooker's  song. This ‘sport’ no longer continues and is not recommended!
