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.
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!!
