We have a long-established relationship with the third sector and charitable organisations, both as training facilitators and outdoor experience providers. We aim our wide range of accessible activities and accommodation at young people and adults.

Experience Outdoors is a member of the Institute of Outdoor Learning, and one of our fundamental values is facilitating Outdoor Learning across all communities, including discovery and experimentation, stimulating curiosity and developing an appreciation of the world around us which results in significant academic, health and wellbeing benefits. Working with Third Sector organisations is at the core of our values and purpose.

Our centres in the Cairngorms and Argyll offer a wide range of on-site activities and accommodation options. We can work with your group to tailor a package which suits the age range and abilities, providing an inclusive approach. Our on-site instructors and activity leaders will help make your parties' outdoor learning experience safe and memorable.

Experience Outdoors can offer tailored activity packages to help make your stay memorable. Contact the centre to discuss.


We have a wide range of accommodation options to suit all sizes of groups with our lodges able to accommodate from six up to 58 people.

There are some BBQ huts and picnic areas throughout the site to help you make the most of the outdoors.

For larger groups, our main house can accommodate up to 58 and has some meeting rooms, common areas and bedrooms in a variety of twin rooms and bunk rooms.
