Activity and adventure breaks, and teambuilding in the Trossachs

With some great local providers well known to us, set your spirit of adventure free with a white water rafting excursion or take up the challenge of canyoning, abseiling and mountain biking.

River running is virtually as old as civilization itself, but rafting and kayaking as recreational activities are relatively new. A river journey is one of the most enjoyable ways to experience the rural areas and natural environments of any country. These pleasures are complimented by an even greater thrill; running through powerful, fast flowing rapids.

A little further afield, Loch Earn is one of the premier watersport venues in Scotland, with superb facilities available at Lochearnhead. Tuition is available in canoeing, dinghy sailing and water skiing, all amidst breathtaking scenery. For a more leisurely pace, small-engined boats are also available for hire. In the Trossachs, Lochs Venachar and Achray are also popular watersport venues.

he Trossachs offer year-round adventure and adrenalin breaks and holidays - for individuals and groups of all abilities. Residential adventure breaks and expeditions, especially water based - in spectacular highland scenic settings.

Water is what made the Trossachs - and the rest of Scotland, with a little help from the mountains! With so much water around, there is ample scope for almost every adventure watersport you could imagine. The rivers rising in this region flow both east and west, to the rivers Tay, Forth and Clyde as the watersheds in the region shed their water in three directions.

The rivers have different natures and offer everything from slow deep peaceful stretches to rapids which test the most advanced canoe or white water rafting enthusiast. The Lochs can be small and interesting, or large and exposed. Some have hosts of small islands to explore - some even have the remains of ancient dwellings or strongholds on crannogs.

Make sure you're suitably dressed before you go!
