Great fun
Rachel_L, Apr 2022
Getting used to the cold water was a shock but we soon warmed up! Adam and his dog Fin were excellent guides. My daughter had a blast and was off ahead. Great activity for the kids (age 14 and 9).
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Beginning to think Fin is the only one we need :-) Thanks for your review, and glad that you enjoyed it!
Wonderful adventure that brings great fun. For everyone!
Nicola_D, Mar 2022
Definitely, an experience to try at least once in a lifetime! No particular experience or level of fitness is required to have fun.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
A ghyll for all! Really glad that you enjoyed it, and thanks for leaving a review.
Awesome Ghyll Scrambling
Marcus_W, Oct 2021
Instructor was excellent and the wetsuit and gear was top quality which made the whole experience so much better. Best bit was definitely leaping off the top of a waterfall into a plunge pool - great for team building.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
glad that you enjoyed it, and yes - in October you do need a decent wetsuit, so glad we've got those, along with the wetsuit socks for warm(er) toes!
Incredible experience
Oliver_H, Sep 2021
Woody was such a great instructor! The whole experience was just incredible. I would highly recommend anybody do this!!!
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thanks for your kind comments, and glad that you enjoyed your trip with Woody - ghylls are his natural environment it would seem!
Go for it - even if you’re a bit scared of heights!
Sally_S, Aug 2021
Such a wonderful way to spend a hot, sunny morning. The water was so refreshing. All equipment provided and John was a great guide… clear and straight and good with all ages, including mine. I’m not so good with heights, but managed all of it without too much screaming 😬 and was secretly a bit proud of myself as we wandered back down the hill at the end. Think I might go again ….
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Glad to hear your proud of yourself! Its amazing what can be achieved with a subtle push :-) Hope to see you all again.
Sooooo much fun!!!
