spectacular mountain playground

The Compass Christian Centre is a brilliant base in the Cairngorms for both indoor and outdoor activities, set in a spectacular mountain playground!

At the centre you can try tree climbing, the ropes course, kayaking, raft building and a fantastic zip wire or you can practice your rock skills on the climbing wall.

Gorge walking is also available as an off-site activity. Get signed up for Glenshee and accept the challenge!

What's the location like?

If you love the outdoors you’ll love this…are you up for it?

The adventure never stops at Glenshee. Many of the exciting outdoor activities are led by Compass Christian Centre instructors, while the SU Holidays team run other aspects of the holiday, leading games, craft sessions, providing loads of fun and high levels of supervision throughout the holiday.

The evening programme provides time to relax but is just as adventurous, looking at the Bible to see how it applies to our lives today.

What's Outside?

Well for starters there’s the stunning location in one of Scotland’s outdoor activity hotspots. The centre grounds include a spectacular tree climb, ropes course and even its own lochan for kayaking and raft building. Other outdoor activities really make the most of the exciting local terrain!

What’s inside?

Inside at Glenshee Lodge you’ll find a well equipped centre with a spacious dining room and two lounges. Meals at Glenshee are provided by the centre staff…and you don’t even need to help with the washing up! The accommodation is all in bunk-bedded rooms. Rooms are for 4 – 8 people and the centre sleeps around 50 altogether. There’s a sports hall, a climbing room with walls to challenge your skills, and a games room. So no shortage of great activities inside either.

Where is it?

Glenshee is right in the centre of Scotland, in amongst some of Perthshire’s highest peaks. Aberdeen, Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh are no more than two hours away, so wherever you are starting from, Glenshee is not too far away.
