Firbush Outdoor Centre is one of the University of Edinburgh’s hidden treasures. It is managed by Sport & Exercise and located on the spectacular shores of Loch Tay. We aim to provide a unique and memorable experience to all who visit. Guests have been seeking adventure and the chance to unwind from daily life since 1967!

Firbush encourages a sense of adventure, community spirit and promotes general wellbeing. A trip to Firbush is good for the soul and will always boost both your physical and mental health.

We offer a wide range of mountain and water-based activities all year round and cater to a variety of different groups. From within the University community, we welcome reading parties, field trips, sports clubs, societies and staff conferences. We are open to other universities, companies, families and other informal groups looking for an adventure!

We offer day adventures for those not wishing to stay overnight. In the summer we offer family weeks as well as guided loch and river paddling days. In the winter months, guided winter mountain days are available to book.

Throughout the year, there is a variety of open skill-based courses. From winter skills, RYA sailing & windsurfing to SCA paddlesports.

Firbush has something for everybody and we hope to welcome you very soon!
