DofE Expedition opportunity

20 July 2021

We’re excited to be able to offer some funded places for DofE expeditions at our Scout Adventures Lochgoilhead Centre.

This is being supported by the DofE Diamond fund and is aimed at anyone who has struggled to complete their expedition section due to the pandemic.

It’s short notice and there are limited spaces but this is a great opportunity to get out in the hills under the supervision and guidance of our professional outdoor instructors.

Basic training is needed for practice expeditions but don’t worry if it has been a while since you have used you skills our instructors will be around to help. For qualifying expeditions please make sure you are fully prepared, the DofE training criteria can be found here: Expedition Downloads - Proficiency in Mode of Travel - The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (

And there are some great online training resources here for anyone looking to brush up on skills or check their own competency:

Places are fully funded other than a £5 booking fee.
