What our clients say


Jordan 1st session on the water..fantastic session...lovely staff...fabulous time had..deffo coming back soon.

We contacted Outdoor Pursuits Scotland after a recommendation from another company who didn't have availability. There was a very quick reply and we were fitted in with no problem. We had a fantastic time at the Devil's Pulpit (other locations available) and Phil got us down the gorge with his expertise, reassuring advice and bonus chat eg: filming location and the history behind the name of the attraction. Would highly recommend to anyone, looking forward to next one.

Great trip in the heart of the city. Staff were excellent and everyone had a great trip. All looked after well and all abilities and confidence levels catered for excellently. Highly recommend it! We enjoyed it so much we booked in for river boarding the next week which was amazing fun! Book now! U will love it!
