'Abernethy - Ardeonaig' for Residential School Trips and Educational Visits?
Abernethy Ardeonaig is one of four Abernethy Adventure Centres that have been operated by the Abernethy Trust since 1971, and since then we have built up a wealth of expertise in outdoor education. At each of our adventure centres, we offer a wide range of adventure activities all year round. A passion for excellence underpins all that we do and our team-members are carefully selected for their skills, character and ability to work with young people.
