What is Canyoning?

Canyoning in Scotland is one of the most fun, adventurous and exciting things that you can do on your trip to the Highlands & is a fast growing adrenaline filled adventure sport. The sport was was originally developed in Alpine areas of Europe and the canyon lands of America as a method of exploring deep watercourses, or river bed in a deep gorge. Canyoning trips normally involve using jumping techniques, rope work, abseiling over waterfalls, scrambling up and over rocks, swimming through pools & sliding down smooth flumes carved out by mother nature over thousands of years.

Scotland has become a major destination for adventure sports over the last 10 years and is full of fantastic venues to explore for this exciting & developing adventure sport. So come along, put on your wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet & harness, hike up the hill side and jump on in with Active Highs!
