Grey Mare's Tail - Canyoning


Looking for extreme canyoning in Scotland? You've found it - this is currently the most technical canyon in the UK, a committing slot canyon full of technical drops, long slides, jumps and multi pitch abseils.

This really is canyoning as you would find it in the Alps - large waterfalls with breath-taking scenery. This trip climaxes with a multi pitch abseil of 90m alongside the Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall - head for heights essential!

Using the Via ferrata to assend the waterfall at the start of the day it gives you 2 amazing and one off activities in a day. 

We provide you with the very best professional guiding, all the specialist equipment needed and one of the most exciting and exhilarating outdoor activities in Scotland.

£120 per person - group price available See Essential Info table below for more details
