Canyoning and gorge walking both take place alongside and in Scotland’s rivers. Gorge walking, as the name suggests involves walking down (or up) a river, jumping into pools and sliding down waterfalls. Canyoning is similar but a bit more extreme. It involves bigger jumps and slides as well as harnessed abseils.
Unlike the other two activities, coasteering takes place along the coast and involves climbing, scrambling and swimming along the rocky shore and cliffs. It (almost) always includes jumping into the sea.
