Learn through adventure

Based in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Scout Adventures is the perfect base for the complete adventure package.

Located close to Loch Goil and Argyll Forest Park, Lochgoilhead offers an exceptional natural setting for high-quality outdoor learning in hill, forest and water environments. Delivered by an experienced team of instructors, our residentials for schools, Scouts, and other youth groups offer challenging educational experiences for young people of all ages and abilities.

We work closely with teachers, Scout Leaders and youth workers to develop a challenging programme of land and water activities that can be matched with Curriculum for Excellence or programme outcomes.

We are also an Approved Activity Provider for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and can support the expedition and residential elements of the Award.

Our great-value packages include indoor accommodation and three meals a day, so you can let us take care of you while you focus on exploring the great outdoors.
