The River Orchy Very much a weather dependant river. The river Orchy comes up and down very quickly. When it is up it is the most exciting rafting trip commercially run in Britain. This is a full day trip and definitely not for the faint hearted. In the event of the river not running an alternative will be used.


The place known as Bridge of Orchy is - well almost literally a bridge, except for a few small houses scattered around it and a Scottish highland hotel. Mention of the hotel is quite apt as the main reason for the hamlet was a stopping place for travellers. Bridge of Orchy is also popular for two other reasons. One is the use of the River Orchy here by canoeists and white water rafters, the other significant attraction is the climb of the dominant summits of Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh, which guard this small hamlet.
