Now this really is an exhilarating way to spend a morning or afternoon, whether you’re in a group of family and friends, school or youth group, stag or hen, or the experience is part of some corporate team-building. The location is a stunning little gorge just a 10 mile / 15 minute drive from Craggan Outdoors. Fully briefed and kitted out in a quality 5mm full-body wetsuit (standard outdoor centre suits are 3mm), buoyancy aid and helmet in the comfort of our changing rooms, you then make the short journey to the gorge, full of anticipation and excitement. Once there you’ll hear the thunder of the water and then witness the beauty of one of nature’s fantastic achievements.
Briefed again by your two instructors, best practice from a safety perspective – we’re very happy to tell you why – you step in at the bottom of the gorge and begin to acclimatise to the fresh mountain water. Then led one instructor and tailed by the other – you can’t be in safer hands as our team know the gorge like the back of their hands – you walk, wade, swim, scramble and clamber up small waterfalls, gullies and chutes until reaching the plunge pool at the top of the gorge. Climb up the rocks and do just that….a ten foot plunge back in! Once everybody’s had enough of that, it’s off back down again, slipping and sliding down all those gullies and chutes.
Price per person for this fantastic fun – check out the video below – is from £45 upwards, depending upon the size of your group. Always book ahead to avoid disappointment. Please note that your own transport may be required for this activity. Please also check out how your participation in this activity helps Craggan Outdoors’ support of our chosen charity, Water for Kids.
Please note that after heavy rain the water level in the gorge can become too high to safely operate this activity. In this instance the options are that we will liaise with the group organiser as to alternative activities that the group can do on the day, or will offer a full credit for the group to return for gorge walking on a future occasion. All bookings for gorge walking are accepted on this basis, with the health & safety of participants being our paramount concern.
