Grey Mare's Tail Advanced Canyoning Adventure

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!

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.

The Grey Mare's Tail route - like our Nathrach and Dundonnell adventures - is a more advanced and exhilarating experience, designed for those who want to push for the limits. If you're after something more friendly for first-timers and younger adventurers, check out our Inchree Falls and Ben Nevis canyoning experiences.
