We did the raft building course as part of a hen weekend. Everyone who took part really enjoyed both the raft building and the subsequent raft racing! The instructors were helpful and a good laugh and the facilities were excellent. Overall it was a fantastic experience!

I booked to canoe down the River Spey for a friend's birthday treat and we all had a fantastic morning on the river. The experience for everyone (age range from 11-58 ) was challenging, exhilarating, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. The attention to detail and professionalism of 'G' the senior instructor at Craggan is second to none. His experience is clearly... More

10 of us went canoeing along the river Spey. G, our instructor, was excellent & helped us all along perfectly. Views were stunning, river was gorgeous & weather was calm & fresh. Would definitely recommend to others.

Did a full day of activities here which comprised gorge walking, zip wiring and mini quads for the 2 kids. Communication before the day was great especially in terms of advice about the activities - we were complete novices. The day itself was fantastic - gorge walking was a particular favourite and I am not normally into things like this.... More

Checked out this place for its activities, but found it was very over priced for what they were offering. I'd recommend going to aviemore to do all of their activities as the companys are far better value for money!

Interesting review. Given that this person just 'checked out' what we have to offer, I don't believe that she actually sampled our services, so if that's the case then not really realistic to be able to comment on whether we deliver value for money or not. Thousands of customers a year seem to indicate that we do, so will leave... More

Our 3rd visit to Craggan with a group of 16 Boys from Boys' Brigade in Aberdeen area. The 2 instructors made this fun and enjoyable for all who took part. A number of Boys had not kayaked before but instruction, equipment and size of pond made it a safe place for them to learn and pick up skills very quickly.

We booked two children to do Gorge Walking and thought the price was quite expensive - £55 each (website said £35 upwards). The safety instruction at the start was good and also the location was excellent. However, our 12 year old only got to go up the gorge and not the exciting part of coming back down. She was told...

Firstly, thanks to 'ArivaTrip' for booking their two children to gorge walk with us, & for taking the time to place a review. We don't usually respond to reviews, good, bad or indifferent, as everybody is entitled to their opinion of their personal experience, but as this review does by it's nature call into question our professional judgement in regards...

We were returning for our third consecutive annual girls weekend and were warmly greeted by Keith and the rest of the team. I had rather unhelpfully requested mountain biking but without the mountain as wasn't sure if the girls would be up for it and raring to go! Poor Nicky had drawn the instructor short straw and was lumbered with... More

Our family group of ten people had a gentle canoe trip down the River Spey thanks to Craggan Outdoors. We had a range of abilities and each was given the confidence to be part of the team.
