Emergency & Rescue Services

Pinkston’s Artificial White Water Course is Scotland’s first and only grade 2/3 white water centre based in the heart of Glasgow.  Pinkston is a fantastic location to support your Swift Water Rescue Training and help to recreate realistic rescue scenarios.  The course is managed by our well-trained staff team in the adjacent office and the course is quickly and easily adjusted to suit your training requirements at all times throughout your visit.

We price by the hour – therefore we can assure you of a cost-effective service, tailor made to your requirements.  Please call to find out more, arrange a site visit, check availability, and book your slots.

Both private and public emergency and rescue services are made most welcome at Pinkston – we simply need to make sure you complete our ‘External Operators Safety Training’ or ESO – we can do this free of charge on a familiarisation visit and the training takes approximately an hour.  We expect a site visit to last approximately 2 hours.
