I have just had the best day out with Ben and George in the Tummel canyon. It was awesome!! I’ve been canyoning a couple of times before, but this trip is great. All the waterfalls were abseils from 6m up to 22m, I now feel super confident abseiling and can’t wait to try another adventure with these guys. I could write an essay on how awesome it was and how amazing they both are but I'm sure they are sick of my voice. Thanks Again

I have been lucky enough to have taken several canyoning training courses with The Canyoning Company, and have not been disappointed with any of them. Ben and George are fantastic instructors and the courses they provide are exceptional, whether it is a practical session in the canyon, a technical day at a training venue or a class room day in their riverside log cabin, the environment they create is an ideal situation to increase your knowledge, understanding and skills. Whether you’re just interested in finding out more or are truly passionate about Canyoning I can’t recommend taking one of their courses enough.

Had an awesome time on the beginner and then advanced white water canyoning course led by Ben Case and George Yates this past week! Learnt so much and had a blast in some canyons and white water! On the last day when it was tipping down we were able to get techy with ropes in the Nae Limits Adventure training area looking at methods (mechanical and manual) for ascending and descending, haul systems and direct rescues. The day before we were able to get in and do some rigging in the River Garry and get in and feel the different hydrolic features in high water! Got to head to Dollar canyon with two of the other participants Ryan Clark and Allan Dunlop on a day off in between the two courses and have a play and consolidate the techniques from the beginner course. On the beginners course we did a full day of introduction and practice with white water features, swimming and crossing techniques and rescue techniques and principles. We were also taught releasible and retrievable abseil and traverse line rigging methods which we were able to practice in the canyon at Bruar the next day as well as explore guided rappels. Had an absolute blast am now going back over some of the techniques we've learnt to consoladate them and explore them further. This has definitely equipped me with skills and knowledge that will enable me to improve my canyoning ability and confidence with rigging and white water both personally and professionally. They were able to adapt the content to our personal needs and gave an excellent balance of teaching and practice. Would 100% recomend to others, recreational or professional, who wish to up skill themselves in the canyon, you are guaranteed to learn lots of new and useful things!!

5 / 5
I did the whitewater and advanced whitewater training with the guys at The Canyoning Company. After many years of canyoning it was perfect to practice some more advanced techniques, learn lots of new ones and improve some old habits. It was hard to find a course that caters to experienced canyoners wanting to improve all round skills however this was perfect.
