What Can I Expect

Thrilling white water rafting in Glasgow and a whole lot more besides! There are four ways to make a splash at this unique urban watersports centre in Scotland, with white water rafting, river boarding, river tubing and Funyaking all available for you to try.

Pinkston watersports centre just beyond the M8 in Glasgow is Scotland's only artificial white water centre. It's really close to the city and is a great place to get a group of you together and try something new - but we have to warn you, you will be getting wet!

There's actually a flat water basin here at Pinkston, which has bathing-quality water for swimming and things like kayaking. But you'll be tackling the full-on 100m-long purpose-built whitewater course at this friendly Glasgow venue, with swirling water challenges and obstacles at every turn. All you need to do is choose your weapon to ride the rapids...

Go classic as a group of you jump aboard an inflatable raft with a guide at the helm. Or go all Hawaii 5-0 with a Funyak. These inflatable craft are a bit like a kayak, but a lot less tricky to handle. Armed with a twin-blade paddle, you and your Funyaking partner ride tandem down the rapids.

For solo white water fiends in Glasgow, try river boarding or river tubing on the rapids. The river board is just like a boogie board, using your body to steer through the swirling waters of Pinkston. River tubing involves riding the waters in what is essentially a big, doughnut. Water will splish and splash all over you, so you'll need to be at ease both on and actually in the water for these two.

Whether you go for whirling white water rafting in Glasgow, head down the rapids two by two in a Funyak or give the crazy sports of river boarding or tubing a go, it's going to be a great day out on the waters of Pinkston. And of course, the water craft, paddles, fins, wet suit, buoyancy aid and helmet are all included.
