Gorge Walking in the Cairngorms

A truly exhilarating experience, get ready to walk, wade, swim, scramble and clamber up small waterfalls, gullies, and chutes. Of course, every good experience needs the ultimate high, once you reach the top of the gorge it’s a 10-foot step into the plunge pool! Once you’ve conquered that, slip and slide your way back down those gullies and chutes.

Our Gorge Walking is set in a stunning little gorge just a 15-minute drive from Cairngorms Activities. You’ll be fully briefed and kitted out with a 5mm full-body wetsuit, buoyancy aid, and helmet. You’ll change in the comfort of our changing rooms before making your way to the gorge.

Gorge Walking is the perfect morning or afternoon activity for a group of family and friends, school or youth group, stag or hen, or as part of corporate team-building. This 3-hour activity is suitable for ages 10+ years and is available from April-October.
