Ocean swimming, rock hopping, small cliff jumps, scrambling over boulders and exploring a coastline without a boat or craft all in one journeying activity then coasteering is the answer.
A popular venue used by Ancrum Outdoor Centre for this high energy activity is the nearby famous Arbroath cliffs where you will progress from swimming in calm waters to adventure swimming in sections of rough or whitewater and against tidal currents whilst rock hopping, scrambling and jumping from a variety of small cliffs into deep pools and exploring the impact zones where water, rocks, gullies and caves come together. Anyone wishing to book a private party for this activity would require a minimum of 5 people.
Ancrum Outdoor Centre is a member of the National Coasteering Charter (NCC) and has been involved in the development of coasteering for over 20 years. We offer instructor training, continuous professional development workshops and technical advice. Please contact the centre to discuss your requirements.
