Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went on a stag do to Oban and one of our events was the canyoning with Vertical Descents on the Saturday morning. Inchree Falls was a fabulous location, beautiful views and great fun. Tim, our instructor, was chill, a great laugh and made sure we were safe all the way. When climbing up to the starting point all kitted out, we were looking at the big falls on the way and thought that we wouldn't be going down all the big drops - we did! The experience was so much fun, full of jumps, scrambling and a zip slide and perfect for my main man who was the stag.

Thanks Vertical Descents (Tim mate, great to meet you and thanks to Sian who was great at the comms when booking too). :)

We were guided by Tim at Inchree falls for an afternoon canyoning. Tim was a fantastic guide, making the trip fun, interesting and safe. We all have great memories of the day and are looking forward to doing another trip in the future

Really fun trip down Inchee Falls. Tim was a great guide. My 13yr nephew felt comfortable and confident navigating the canyon with him.

This is for Johnny at the Kinlochlevel location for via ferrata. Absolutely worth it! Prettiest via Ferrata I’ll probably ever do with the waterfall and rainforest feel. Johnny was amazing! They also have canyoning and coasteering!

6 of us did the Via Ferrara in Kinlochleven with Tim as our guide.
The activity itself was amazing, beautiful scenery and the waterfall that we were so close to was lovely.
A few of us were a bit apprehensive but Tim was hugely encouraging and accommodating with us and everyone loved the day.
I’ve done a few outdoor and water based activities with various companies and Vertical Descents is definitely one of the best.
Planning to take my two boys next year!

We had the pleasure to be guided by Tim. His communication, experience was top notch as well as his sense of humour. We felt completely at ease and safe the whole day. This combined with the amazing activities (via ferrata and kanyoning) made the whole day worth every penny! We strongly recommend it!

This was my second time joining this tour (first time 5 years ago) and we had just as much fun this time as last. The instructor will really guide the experience to the level of your group giving you options at each of the intervals to what you are comfortable with. Both guides we've had have bee great and fun to be around, and took their time making sure everyone was safe.

They do take some photos of you, but as there is one guide, you'll get one angle. I'd bring your own gopro if you're a group and have one.

They have a lot of shoes - but sizes are all over the place. If you have STURDY water shoes or old gym shoes that is best, but as many people are already tight on luggage (GUILTY) - you are PROBABLY ok with using ones they have. Most are stretched out so be sure to try on before you go with normal size.

The water is COLD. it was much colder 5 years ago, but this past year was kind of a heat wave. The wetsuit does a good job of keeping you warm; but just be prepared for it.

Overall - awesome experience, beautiful and fun day in Scotland!
