Canyoning is the perfect activity for the adventurous at heart. Sessions start with a relaxed walk in from Glen Brittle towards the spectacular Black Cuillin ridge. If you're lucky enough to spot the tops of the hills on the Island of Rum it's going to be a good day!
The walk in takes you along side the gully towards the approach to the canyon, you will catch a glimpse of the dark canyon through the birch trees on the way up. A gentle descent gets you into the canyon itself where you will abseil through waterfalls, slide down polished chutes, jump and swim into the depths. Eventually a final abseil will release you from the dark heart of the canyon back into the welcoming sunshine!
