How to Book River Findhorn Rafting with Splash
River Findhorn Rafting Scotland
White Water Rafting on the River Findhorn, Aviemore, Scotland truly is something special. A true river for the adventurous, due to this the age of participation is strictly 18+ years of age, Adults Only. The Findhorn is recognised as one of the best section of river in the UK for both white water rafting.
The River Findhorn has the record for the largest recorded flow in the UK, this happened in the flood of 1970. The river is no stranger to high flow with the history books showing the river flooding back in 1829, where the river filled the valley, 200 yards wide to a level of 50 feet above the normal height of the water. This is thought to be the largest UK flood ever!
This section of the River Findhorn is a full day trip. It is a once in lifetime rafting experience. The river takes you through what has been said to be the some of the most exquisitely picturesque and exciting stretch of the river in the land. This section drops steeply for around 3.5 miles (5.5km) starting just below the misnamed Randolphs Leap, an opening of rocks, roughly eight feet in width, tearing its way amid granite cliffs dashing over great boulders and swirling foaming pools.
We negotiate a couple of minor rapids and an island before passing Logie Estate House and dropping into the intimidating yet spectacular gorge. Major rapids such as the Side Winder, Triple Falls, Cork Screw as well as the Slot have to be negotiated. You then pass under evidence from the last major high water, which has left a 30 foot long 5 foot thick Caledonian Pine stump straddling the gorge.
The final stretch flows through wonderful granite serpentine. This passage opens out suddenly to reveal a dramatic geological change to red sandstone cliffs releasing you from the grip of the Lower Findhorn Gorge.
For members of your group or family who would rather chill, Logie Steading has a craft, art and bookshops, a superb café and children’s playground. Scenic walks are abundant.
