About Active Outdoor Pursuits
Active Outdoor Pursuits was founded in 1999 by it’s owners Roy & Sophia Gibson. They share a love of the outdoors, a passion for Scotland’s landscapes, history, culture and wild places but most of all, we love sharing this with others. For 20 years Active Outdoor Pursuits has had the pleasure of witnessing the fun, exhilaration, personal growth and challenge that so many people from every background experience when pursuing outdoor adventures. Many have used Active to simply experience the thrill the outdoors can provide or to gain a deeper appreciation of our environment. Some have come to learn and develop new skills or start a new career on an Outdoor Instructor Training Course, some come for an outdoor learning experience with their School or College, an experience every young person should have, some come to explore new places while others come to find themselves! This is the vision we set out to achieve…helping people to experience their own unique adventures.

Journeying Total Distance – 73 Miles
Our Great Glen Way Adventure Journey begins in Fort William. We travel by bike from Neptune’s Staircase, the start of the Caledonian Canal
The next part of the Great Glen Way Adventure will be undertaken in traditional open Canadian canoes, from South Lagan up the Caledonian Canal and passing the monument of the Well Of The Seven Heads with its dark murderous past.
Straight on to the daunting site of Loch Ness stretching further than the eye can see. Don’t worry – you’ll soon reach land again as we’ll be traveling in sea kayak.
Our final day of the Great Glen Way Advtenture! And a day of diversity as we leave Drumnadrochit and its castle behind and travel to the small cosmopolitan city of Inverness (Capital of the Highlands).

We went white water rafting on the River Garry with Jim from Active Outdoor Pursuits. He was really friendly and professional and we felt we were in good hands. Above all it was great fun and over too soon. Because the run is quite short, you do it twice, so there was a bit of boat carrying involved, but all part of getting involved in the experience. Plus - what a beautiful river!

Fantastic day out for all the family. The instructors ( Freddie and Rory I think- sorry if this is wrong) were very friendly and enthusiastic, they understood the needs of our group, the ones who were a bit more adventurous and the ones who wanted to enjoy the scenery. The weather was gloriously hot, not ideal for white water rafting but this didn't take away from the overall experience. The company were attentive, quick to respond to emails, professional and we felt we were in very safe hands. As a group of 16 we booked various activities over 3 days and we were not disappointed. Would thoroughly recommend this company. Thank you.

We went whitewater rafting with this company. Very well organised, particularly in these difficult times. Excellent instructors. Only downside is that there was very little white water compared to previous rafting experiences. All in all - An enjoyable day.
