Experience the thrill of flying down rapids, avoiding rocks, squeezing through gullies and dropping over waterfalls. Once you have a taste for being on the wild Scottish rivers you won’t want to get back on dry land. Also ski at the Cairngorm Ski area, The Lecht or the Nevis Range near Fort William.
