Join us for a full day of fun and adventure. Our adventure days are designed around you. You will take part in a morning and afternoon activity and can choose to spend the entire day on the water or enjoy a land activity too. From open water canoeing or kayaking on Loch Tay to exploring the local woodlands and mountains by foot or bike, the choice is yours.

Ideal for all those wishing to escape the world of zoom for a day! From academic groups to individuals or a group of friends to a family get-together it's the perfect chance for some outdoor fun! We can accommodate groups of up to 12 people. There are two sessions for our Adventure days, one from 9am to 4pm or the other from 10am to 5pm.

To finish our adventure days all guests are treated to our famous cake and tea session - a great way to reflect back on the highlights of the day!

We look forward to welcoming you soon and promise we will provide a day to remember!
