KX6 has been a very popular SU Holiday for many years, and young people keep on coming back. There is a wide choice of activities, and the emphasis is on choice, with nothing really compulsory, apart from eating and sleeping! Some parents let their children attend this holiday as they themselves attended when they were at school and Kenny & Alison are still leading!

There is a very wide choice of activity options presented to young people to choose from every day, none of which are compulsory. These include challenging, relaxing, creative, social and sporting activities. Choice is important to us and we let you make your decision as close to the activity times as possible. We make full use of all that this holiday island has to offer, and we allow a good deal of space for chilling out, especially in good weather.

We stay in sturdy big tents – 5 or 6 in each, with friends. We have good showers, indoor facilities for cooking, dining, games and meetings.

We aim to have a lively “Roadshow” every day – an all together TV studio type event with messy games, challenges, chants, DVD clips and much more. It’s a very popular daily event which young people love being part of, and in which team members can be seen in a new light.

We have a range of entertaining events during the week which are very popular, including a film night on the big screen, a ceilidh and games evening, an “X-Factor” type event, and some unique wide games all around Kingscross point.

We take a theme every year and from the theme we design group names, themed activities and room decorations. We’ve had “Clans”, “Highlanders & Islanders”, “Movies”, “Continents” and “Minions”. This year? We’ll decide in May!

We have a core team who enjoy one another’s company and are good friends. They love to ensure that we have a lively, highly entertaining and exciting week so that a very high proportion of young people want to return in following years and can meet up at our annual reunion weekend in December.

Your team leaders for this holiday are Kenny McKie & Alison McKie & Lindsay Glover & Andrew McKay.

What's the location like?

Being on an island brings its own special sense of adventure and the beautiful island of Arran is just off the west coast of Scotland. It really is an amazing location with fantastic outdoor activities, great beaches, impressive mountains, a historic castle and loads more to see and do. Our campsite is the ideal place to stay for a great island holiday – come and try it for yourself!
