Really good friendly staff, Activities were well pitched, I like a lot of surfing, snowboarding and climbing and still had an epic day out canyoning and white water rafting. Friend was also unexperienced in such activities and had loads of fun.
If your not sure, go for it, you wont regret it.

“Super activities!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Visited the Great Glen Water Park several times now and have always booked activities with Active Highs. Andy and the lads are always very accomodating to each of our family needs and the list of activities to suit each family member are endless. Each activity is carried out professionally and always with a sense of humour and our twice yearly holiday to Scotland would not be the same without taking part in the activities!! Particularly fun are the white water rafting which Thursdays would not be the same without and for the more cautious the family safari which takes in beautiful scenery with just so much family fun. Keep it up guys you doing a great job! Miriam and John Smith and family.

“White Water Rafting”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We had a fantastic time, the guys made it great fun. My friend was very nervous but by the end of the afternoon she didn't want it to end!
We were late arriving as we used sat nav which sent us to the wrong place so use a good old fashioned map!!!!

“Rafting and gorge walking,”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We have been in July with the family in Scotland. We do like active vacations and so ended up with active highs. We have done that week two activities. The rafting and gorge walking. It was both super fun! Especially since the staff has a great sense of humor. So thank everybody from Netherlands! We will definitely return.

“"White Water Rafting in Scotland"”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Really enjoyed our first white water rafting experience with the guys at Active Highs. Excellent day, lots of laughs. Felt safe and well supervised at all times. Would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of having a go. Gutted I lost the tug of war with instructor Dan but I think that was inevitable :) Definitely doing it again and will be looking at Canyoning too!
