River Bugging




River Bugging in Scotland is a fun, exciting and new outdoor activity. River Bugs are purpose built white water crafts, not to be confused with adventure tubes or hydro speeds. They are manoeuvrable, inflatable armchair-like one man rafts. Vertical Descents is the only company on the West Coast to offer this fun-packed adventure activity. 

No experience necessary, you will be kitted up with webbed gloves, flippers and thermal neoprene wetsuit and have some of the best white water fun you could imagine. These amazing river bugs are a guaranteed laugh and are a new and different way of travelling down some of Scotland's finest rivers.
