Skye has many beautiful rivers and canyons to explore and is a truly unique place to experience gorge walking. The best thing about the gorge is that it feels untouched, a landscape that hasn't changed since the glaciers carved it out. The kind of place that a pterodactyl could swoop out of the prehistoric vegetetation, or even a Kingfisher which Matt claims to have spotted in there!
You'll start your session with a half an hour walk up to the get in point then make your way back down the gorge, following the course of the river. You'll jump, climb, slide and swim, play in some amazing plunge pools and slide down waterfalls as you scramble your way through the gorge. Our sessions can be adjusted to suit your ability and what you want to get out of your day; so if it's a completely new experince for you, you will feel safe and happy!
