Term of use
By using the website www.oascotland.com you agree to the below terms and conditions. However, if you do not agree or accept them then please do not use the website.
The aim of the website www.oascotland.com ('the website') is to help travellers from outside Scotland interested in a) going to Scotland and b) outdoor and adventures activities of a certain type, such as climbing, hiking, mountain biking and fishing. This we try to do by making the website a useful tool to both find and get in touch with organisers of such activities ('the suppliers').
The information provided
The information about the various activities and each of the suppliers has been provided to us, whether through for example the supplier and / or the local tourism organisation. Since the number of suppliers is substantial we rely fully on the accuracy of the information provided. We unfortunately have do not have the capacity or resources to check or verify any descriptions, their location e t c. Also, quite naturally not all activities will be available all year around. It is therefore essential to always getting in touch with the chosen supplier/s beforehand to avoid disappointment.
The information on the page 'Before you travel' are merely examples of resources that could prove useful. There are many others providing similar services. It is entirely your own responsibility to research what's best for you.
We have chose to focus on a certain set or activities. All those activities are not only exciting but also can come with certain risks. Safety is paramount. However, since we merely are a provider of information and therefore in no way involved in the organising of any of the activities, any concerns and questions must be directed to the supplier and we do not take any responsibility or carry any liability. It is entirely your own responsibility to fully adhere to any advise given by the supplier to minimise the risks. We also always recommend you to have a comprehensive travel insurance that cover these sorts of activities. It is entirely your own responsibility to do so. Also, do make sure that the activity supplier has suitable insurance cover and beforehand. Also this is entirely your own responsibility to do so.
Booking an activity
Once you have found an activity that you are interested in trying, you must always get in direct contact with the supplier and beforehand. This is essential to verify for example that it is organised on a certain date, that there is available space, what the cost might be, where the start / meeting point is and if there's any particular equipment that you have to bring along.
Payments to suppliers
Any payment for an activity has to be done as agreed directly with the supplier. Some of them have the option to pay online, others require a bank transfer. What works best you have to verify with the individual supplier. We do not collect any money on behalf of the suppliers.
