    Details

    Explore some of the area's impressive ghylls, definitely for those who don't mind getting wet. Ghyll scrambling involves descending a mountain stream and involves natural slides and jumps. A really different way to enjoy the hills in this spectacular part of the country. We can put you in touch with an instructor as this activity is not held on site.
