Abseiling down sheer cliff edges with waterfalls tumbling overhead, leaping from rock ledges into natural pools, exploring shorelines without a boat; canyoning, gorge walking and coasteering in Scotland are three of the most exhilarating activities you can experience.
Swift-flowing rivers, natural springs and thunderous waterfalls spilling over rocky precipices and deep gorges slicing through Scotland's tranquil glens and forests provide a natural playground perfect for an adventure holiday. The same is true of Scotland's dramatic coastline where you can scramble over rocky shores, explore secret coves and jump straight into sea.
And they don't just cater to seasoned thrill seekers. Unlike more extreme outdoor sports, canyoning, gorge walking and coasteering are splendid family outdoor activities. After getting kitted out in specialist waterproof gear and safety equipment - supervised by an experienced and qualified instructor at all times - kids can also relish sliding down natural flumes, riding tidal swells and swimming into sea caves.
