Scottish Canyoning

Canyoning in Scotland is still a fairly unknown sport but it is now starting to grow fast. We are definitely still a number of steps behind our brothers and sisters in Europe in terms of popularity and Canyon options but we (and a number of other Scottish canyoning companies ) are working hard to change that.

The Experience

Canyoning no matter where it is done in the world be it Scotland, France or Australia the key components will always be the same, ie descending through the canyon. However the landscapes, geology, weather, wildlife and more are all variables that can and do change dramatically from place to place.  This means that no two canyoning experiences will ever be the same.

 

In Scotland Canyoning is generally done in colder waters apart from a few brief months in the height of summer. So we are always dressed in thick neoprene (when you are wrapped in rubber you are always warm no matter the temperature of the water) and ready for it. However some canyoning locations in countries like Australia  or France may not need the same thickness of neoprene to keep out the cold over time.

 

The Beauty

For us the most beautiful thing about Canyoning is that no two Canyons are ever alike. Infact no two trips down the same canyon are ever alike. Canyoning truly is the sport or activity for those looking for adventure in the great outdoors. Canyons also come in many grades or levels and with expert guidance there is always a level for everyone, so pick up the phone give them us a call- adventure awaits. From beginner (first time) to advanced there is always a new level to challenge your personal skill level, fitness level and more.  But canyoning and exploring canyons is not just about skill and fitness it is about adventure, fun, excitement and curiosity, it is about abseiling down waterfalls, jumping off cliffs into deep pools, sliding down natural tunnels and all with not knowing what’s round the next corner. It could be a wide open body of water like a lake or it could be another waterfall or tight slot section. This is what we truly love about canyoning, it is pure adventure. And pure adventure is good for the human soul 🙂

 

Our Canyons

Canyoning.co.uk has eleven Canyons across the width and breadth of Scotland, these Canyoning experiences range from no rope, jump and slide style canyoning (which is great for the family, stag dos and more) to highly technical Canyons that require all the standard skills of a good technical Canyon (these canyons require abseils (rappels), ropework, technical climbing or down-climbing, technical jumps, and/or technical swim’s.) So something for everyone. Canyoning all day can be physically demanding so we always advise to be in good physical shape for our more advanced / technical canyoning experiences.
