Looking For An Outdoor Adventure?

For over forty years, Benmore Centre has been providing unforgettable outdoor learning adventures primarily to school groups, but also to other organisations and family groups.

As a leading Outdoor Learning Centre in Scotland, we strive to inspire maximum personal growth in thousands of visitors every year. Our experienced and qualified instructors are passionate about developing self-awareness and confidence through challenging individual and team experience in an exciting, enjoyable, yet safe alternative environment.

Benmore Centre is a not-for-profit facility operating under the auspices of the Children and Families Department of City of Edinburgh Council.

All activities are carefully risk-assessed and Benmore was the first centre in the UK to receive a licence from the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA).

In addition to school courses complementing the Curriculum for Excellence, we also welcome other groups and initiatives seeking an activity break, or merely a suitable venue for their own programme.
