Coasteering is the sea equivalent of canyoning which likewise involves climbing, jumping, and swimming among the coastal rocks. The best coasteering in Scotland is available on the west coast–particularly the Oban cliffs are suitable, the rocky Dunbar coastline, the craggy areas around Raasay Island, the Isle of Skye, and the Isle of Barra. However, the east coast offers different alternatives, namely Aberdeen Adventure on the North Sea. Coasteering season runs from May to October.
