"Amazing experience"

Canyoning was amazing experience. Both Luke’s made us feel very safe and at the same time ensured we had a load of fun. Would recommend this experience.

"Canyoning is a must!"

The canyoning is a must! Amazing experience swimming in Scotlands natural waters. Luke was brilliant and really patient with me as I was very clumsy! Would recommend to everyone.

"A lot of fun"

We had a great family experience canyoning and on the via ferrata. Our guides, Luke, Reha and Damon, were really engaging and made the activities feel safe but also a lot of fun. The area is stunning and we would thoroughly recommend Vertical Descent.

I can now see why these guys are rated #1 on TripAdvisor. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. We did the canyoning and it was superb and they take all skills levels! THIS. IS. A. MUST!

"Would highly recommend"

Had an amazing experience canyoning at Inchree falls - our guide made us feel comfortable from the outset and encouraged us to do what we could! Challenging, but also so much fun throughout - would highly recommend as an activity to do in Fort William/Glencoe area.
