If you're up for doing something that requires balls of steel on a party weekend in Edinburgh, white water rafting will deliver. When it comes to extreme sports, you'd have to go a long way to beat a river descent in the Scottish countryside!
No experience necessary. All you need is a swimming stuff, a towel and a ‘lets get stuck in and go for it' attitude. Oh, and knackers the size of Edinburgh castle.
After a safety briefing, you'll be kitted out and shown how to steer the raft and paddle down the slower and faster sections of the river. Surf frothing rapids and charge down the faster flowing sections to a calmer spot before hitting the rapids again. It's pretty intense stuff and gets grown men squealing like teenage girls!
Prepare to be blown away, big time. White water rafting in Scotland is a truly amazing experience that'll be talked about long after the stag do. It's also the perfect way to prevent the curse of all-day drinking from running that all-important second night on the lash in Edinburgh.
