“Fun yakking: great experience”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We joined 2-3 h fun yakking experience in september 2013 and it was great fun...we were two beginners and we went with two guides both really nice and friendly, explaining us how to deal with the boat and have fun. The organization was also good and equipment provided..We are already thinking when to go back to maybe try other water sports. Very good balance price-quality

“Gorge-walking - fantastic experience”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

I took my two teenage sons and a reluctant husband gorge-walking in August. We had a great time. The activity was well organised and we're already thinking of going back and also doing other activities such as rafting and canoeing. Shame we do not have any photos, perhaps that is something Active Highs could add to the package.

“Great Glen”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Lovely day's drive right through the Great Glen from Fort William to Inverness and back. passing Loch Linnhe, Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness. No sign of the Loch Ness Monster when we went but keep your eyes peeled just in case!

“Moored our boat here and went white water rafting with Active Highs”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Had a great 3 hours of an afternoon with the team from Active High who took us rafting down a river. It was well organised and completely safe, yet full of frills and excitement! Great place to moor a boat too.

We also booked an archery session with Mike from the resort, it was great family fun.

“White water rafting........great family-fun activity”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Very well organised. There were 9 of us in our party, including 4 children, aged from 8 to 13 and we all had a fab time. We felt very safe, were given clear instructions and Fraser was excellent. Would love to do again! Definitely recommend Active High.
