Abseiling is the controlled descent of a rock face using a rope.
Traditionally used to descend from the top of rock climbs, abseiling is also a separate activity in it’s own right.
At Raasay House, we run our abseil sessions at Inver gorge (a 15-minute drive north of Raasay House) from a grassy outcrop with the abseil descending 15 m into the picturesque gorge. This is certainly an activity which truly tests people’s fear of heights.

The waterfall abseil is a more challenging version of abseiling, incorporating a torrent of water to the vertical challenge. Our waterfall abseil uses a 15 m waterfall at Fearns in the south-east of the island, a 10-minute drive from Raasay House.
