Affordable experiences for young people

As part of Scouts Scotland, our Scout Adventure Centres are a natural home for Scouts and youth groups wanting their young people to build skills for life in a safe, outdoor environment.

We have lots of options available – short and long indoor and outdoor stays that can be run by our instructors or self-led.
