“Fantastic fun & brilliantly Instructed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2009

We had a fantastic time here doing the zip wire activity and the Kayaking.

I'm a bit scared of heights but the instructor for the zip wire made me feel totally at ease and able to do the wire, despite being petrified before I got up there!

The kayaking was brilliant fun, the games were great & the instructor was really good at explaining how to properly control the kayak.

“Just keeps getting better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

Just back from a great weekend at Craggan Outdoors with a group of 16 Explorer Scouts. This is our third visit to Craggan and this time we booked a couple of sessions of gorge walking and despite us living 2 1/2 to 3 hours drive away from the centre, this is definately an activity and a centre that we don't mind travelling to! It is great to see how the centre and the activities on offer just get better and better all the time. Keep up the good work!

“Craggan Outdoors is well worth a visit...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2009

Craggan Outdoors ran 2 of the 3 activities we had booked as part of a Stag do (Clay Pigeon Shooting and Quad Biking). The location was fantastic (not far from Aviemore where we were based), and the staff very friendly and a great laugh. A free BBQ was thrown in as part of the deal, and during downtime there was putting, Par 3 golf course and for the less axtivie - more beers to drink from the well stocked fridges !!

Both activities were well organised and the instructors knowledgable and demonstrated their expertise (Craig doing donuts on the quad bikes was v. impressive!). The Craggan team were always ensuring we were wll looked after - and if you're thinking of planning a stag do - I would definitely recommend this company - and they will tailor the events to meet your demands.

I would state that, for clay pigeon shooting, you get more than 25 clays - as the event will soon be over just as youre getting used to firing a 12 bore shot gun! And the course for the quad biking is amazing - just be sure to get on the nippy 125cc bikes that are more agile...

Overall - great experience and company well deserving of your business

“We had a fantastic time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2009

We phoned Craggan at short-notice and with their flexible approach were able to put together a great programme of activities. My 14-year old son and I went:
- gorge scrambling (up and down the waterfalls and pools in a steep narrow gorge in wet suits and helmets - you MUST try this exhilerating activity)
- fly fishing (on-site with good tuition - didn't catch anything though)
- canoeing down the beautiful River Spey
- quad biking (a fantastic route through the adjoining estate, mostly on tracks, through a stream up to a prepared circuit where you can push yourself and the bike even more. You get plenty of time on the bikes)
- clay pigeon shooting (well supervised, with a mix of angles, singles and pairs of clays)
- white water rafting (arranged by Craggan as part of our single package, but carried out by Aviemore's Ace Adventures) This was fantastic, awesome, to be remembered forever.

Staff were great, encouraging and enabling with good (but not overbearing) safety awareness.

Definitely recommended.

“wonderful experience of the outdoors.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2009

Thanks for making Craggan Outdoor centre a highlight of the girls holiday, enjoying the Gorge Walking to the high ropes, to the rock climbing. The location is easily accesible from Aviemore, only a short journey, easy to find. Splendid little golf course to play for the keen golfer amongst you, test your skills on this tricky 18 holes of par 3. Big thanks to all the staff. An outdoor centre that i would certainly book activities through again.
