Canyoning Scotland

WHAT IS IT?

Canyoning is a series of activities and a journey through and down one of our beautiful local canyons. A descent of one of our local canyons, with natural rock slides, waterfalls, plunge pools and rope lowers makes canyoning one of our most exciting activities. Steve and his team really are the pioneers of Scottish canyoning, continually seeking out different canyons to share with everyone that comes to join us. Try one and we guarantee you will want to come back and try the others.

WHERE WE DO IT

We have a number of different canyons throughout Scotland but most are situated in the stunning area of Highland Perthshire. On the day, a decision on which canyon to use will be determined by size, age and fitness level of the group, unless a specific canyon has been requested.

FALLS OF BRUAR

Bottom section, half-day

This canyon encompasses some nice jumps with a beautiful journey down the gorge

We make our way up the side of the canyon with a lovely walk through the woods overlooking the gorge to our entry point. To start the session we have a nice jump into a beautiful plunge pool, and then make our way down through the gorge using assited lowers, jumps, natural slides and gravity.

Ultimate Canyoning Day - top and bottom sections of falls of Bruar, full-day

Starting with a nice walk up to the top of the canyon section. Loads of jumps, lowers and slides to get us down to the bottom with a little snack break along the way. The pias de resistence is the abseil lower down a beautiful 65foot waterfall. Here you finish the lower in a big room behind the wall of water from the falls.

CALVINE

This is a nice open canyon with the jumps and floating sections well defined so if you prefer one or the other this is probably the site for you. We make our way down a nice open gorge swimming, scrambling and floating, enjoying the scenery along the way. There's some natural water flumes, a slab where we set up a slide and a plunge jacuzzi pool... then onto the jumping section.

KILLIECRANKIE

In Killicrankie all the jumps are based around one calm section of river. We start with some smaller jumps and make our way up and around the gorge to different types of jumps.

Take on the top jump if you dare. At nearly 40 foot this is sure to get your juices going. The jump is off a pedestal type rock platform, where the scenery falls all around you.

Customer Testimonials

Can I express my thanks on behalf of all the lads from the stag doo party on Sunday for an amazing experience. Maybe you remember us as the group with the guy with the bowling shoes! The quality, humour and attitude of the instructors was fantastic. They made it a superb activity and great day for all of us. the photo's of us surfing the last rapid are going to be blown up and put out on the wedding day. Next time we want the big dogs on the River Tummel!!
