The Cairngorms and Argyll are the perfect locations for focussed interest clubs and outdoor activity workshops and breaks. Both centres are in the beautiful landscapes of two of Scotland's National Parks. Lagganlia Outdoor Centre in the heart of the Cairngorms is surrounded by mountains, lochs and forests and close to the resort centre of Aviemore, with excellent rail and road links to central Scotland and beyond.
