GC4a

Watersports
20 - 27 Jul, Glencoe , S1 - S6, £369.00
Accompanied travel: Glasgow (£32)

With Royal Yachting Association qualifications up for grabs as you progress with sailing dinghies, or Scottish Canoe Association qualifications to gain in kayaks and canoes, it easy to see why GC4a is a firm favourite! And since you've got a wetsuit for the week, we wouldn't dream of denying  you our legendary canyoning session either.  Having built confidence and experience on the water, towards the end of the week you'll set off on a day's expedition that sees us having lunch on a beach that we have all sailed or paddled to. Bliss!  During the evenings, we chill out and eat with those in the Adventure Week Holiday (GC4b) in the Glencoe Outdoor Centre.  With all of this set in the iconic scenery of Glencoe and Loch Leven - what is there to think about?  Go for it!

Your team leader for this holiday is David Meikle.

What's the location like?

Don't expect a day in town or at the shops - there's far too much on offer at Glencoe to give in to such tame distractions!

What's outside?

Set amongst the spectacular loch and mountain scenery of Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands, the centre is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Surrounded by fabulous terrain for adventure activities on the doorstep, there's a broad range of outdoor pursuits on both land and water available.

What's inside?

The Glencoe Outdoor Centre is based in a small converted country house, offering accommodation for up to 35 in comfortable bunk-bedded rooms. Built over 100 years ago the house has retained much of its character, which helps to maintain the atmosphere of an extended family home. 

There's a log fire, a games room, a comfortable lounge and a large drying room, and that's just for starters.

Where is it?

Right next to Loch Leven, in the village of Glencoe.
