Specialist Activity Centres in Scotland

Scotland is an exciting place for any child to experience a residential stay at an outdoor activity centre. If you are planning such a visit, but aren't familiar with Scotland and the landscapes we have up here, it is worth knowing that the Highland Boundary Fault running North East to South West separates the rugged highlands from the rural lowlands. Whichever part of Scotland you choose, you will have a full range or activities available, and access to seemingly tailor made terrain for each activity your pupils experience.

Scotland's magnificent natural landscapes promise an exciting adventure experience and are home to dozens of outdoor activity centres. Paddle sports like canoeing and raft building take place on the many tranquil rivers and placid lochs that stretch across the valley floors. For those who like climbing and abseiling, rope courses and zip wires, the sandstone rocks of the Southern Uplands and granite peaks of the Cairngorms are a natural playground. And if water sports are what you have planned, choose one of the centres that hug the spectacular six thousands miles of Scottish coastline.
