Gorge Walking

Gorge walking

“An over-indulgence of anything, even something as pure as water, can intoxicate.”
Criss Jami

Gorge walking is all about getting thoroughly soaked and enjoying the experience. The journey starts by wading through water. Then you will get the chance to scramble up waterfalls, slide down on natural flumes and jump off cliffs into the water below. Arran Outdoor Centre use North Glen Sannox burn - with its many waterfalls, deep pools and breathtaking views - it is a great place to have fun getting wet.

Experienced instructors will lead your group through the gorge; we keep the numbers in the group down to six or less with all specialist equipment provided by the centre. All those with a reasonable level of fitness aged age 8 and upwards can take part(all under 11 must be accompanied by an adult). Each session will take about three and half hours from leaving our centre in Lamlash to returning to a warm shower and hot drink.

Please remember that there is no obligation or pressure for you to complete all the elements of the gorge walk. Complete what you feel comfortable with. There is a path that runs all the way alongside the gorge so any members of your party who do not wish to take part can come along and watch the fun. The instructors will also take pictures of all the exciting bits which we will send onto you free of charge.
