Accessibility Guide For Highland Outdoor Adventures
Highland Outdoor Adventures are situated in the very heart of Scotland – the Cairngorms National Park. From here we operate and provide activities at a wide variety of different venues right across the country. We want to provide you the best quality we possibly can and inspire you when you are with us.
Whether you book onto a paddlesports day, an adventure day, an expedition or a climbing day we guarantee you will come away with lasting memories of a great outdoor experience in Scotland.
The outdoor activity industry can be a hard industry for many people who have access requirements to get into. But this shouldn’t stop you or us or others! We will endeavour to try and work around your access requirements as best we can and would ask that anyone who needs any additional help on an activity or further information contacts us and we can discuss how best to support you and what activity might be best for you to do.
We have had individuals who can’t hear, see, have one leg and many other access requirements still enjoy partaking in an activity with us.
Please get in touch if you require any further information about specific access or need advice on planning your visit.
- Given we operate at many different venues, each venue is different and may be more or less suited to your requirements. For example wheelchair access in the outdoor environment is very tricky.
- In terms of hearing requirements, all of our instructors are very patient and more than happy to explain things as clearly as possible for people – for certain activities this may not be possible if you can’t hear at all – like white water rafting where your back would be to the guide so could not hear their commands. But if you have someone who can support you we will allow them to come on the activity free of charge.
- For the Visually impaired, the same as the above applies we are happy for any support individual to come along free of charge and we will endeavour to tailor the activities to your needs and desires as best as possible.
- For those with other physical or mental disabilities which you think might impact a day please get in touch with us and we may be able to provide assistance, alter a venue, set up a private course or even set up a bespoke activity for you different to what you see on the website.
