A white water rafting trip on the River Garry offers the best guaranteed trip in the U.K. due to the regular scheduled dam releases of water. The River is great for all experience levels from adventurous families to hardened adrenaline junkies. The river is set in a beautiful Highland Glen surrounded by forest and easily accessible for visitors staying in the Highland area.

The white water section is that good that we also run it twice!

Fantastic fun, by a well-organised and sorted bunch. I took myself and three 11-year old boys as part of a week-long activity holiday in the Highlands and everyone agreed it was the highlight of our amazing trip.
