Itinerary

DAY 1 – Thursday

Your highland adventure begins. Meet your staff at Edge in Musselburgh, load up the buses and head off to your Aviemore wigwam. All that’s left to do today is settle in, get to know your fellow adventurers, grab some dinner and get ready for the exciting adventures ahead.

After dinner, it is time for team games, or chill-out in your wigwam, get some ‘down’ time.

DAY 2 – Friday

AM: TEAM PROBLEM SOLVING & ARCHERY

Team Building: Using simple materials such as lengths of rope and wood, old tyres, plastic barrels, an inner tube, string handcuffs(?!), and of course the power of the human mind and collaborative thinking, the group will be set a series of challenges to solve and overcome, with communication and teamwork being the main skills that will be required, and as a result that will be developed.

Archery: Our range of recurve bows are suited for use by anybody from an 8-9 year old through to the largest adult. We use shatter-proof aluminium arrows, and provide protective arm guards and finger tabs. All we ask of you is that ideally you wear a long sleeve top.

PM: RAFT BUILDING

The ingredients are very simple….you and your group, use some plastic drums, long wooden poles and lots of lengths of rope….and of course the water. Your group will be split into two or three teams, depending upon overall numbers, and then under guidance from your instructor each team gets to design and build their raft. Is it going to be something fairly standard, or do you fancy trying something a little different? What’s going to float best? What’s going to prove fastest on the water?

Once built it’s time to take to the water and test it for ‘seaworthiness’. With all participants kitted out with buoyancy aid, helmet and of course a paddle each, the weight of all team members on the raft and a few test paddles will soon give the answer. If needs be then there will be time and opportunity for any technical adjustments. Then the competitive spirit takes over and the teams are off and racing  to see who gets bragging rights as top raft builders and racers.

BBQ outside weather permitting. In the BBQ Bothy eat and make merry around the campfire.

DAY 3 – Saturday

AM: ABSEILING & OUTDOOR CLIMBING

This is suitable for everybody from the complete novice, through to those that are keen to extend their climbing abilities, to more experienced climbers that wish to be guided on various crags across Strathspey and the Moray Firth coast. Huntly’s Cave, is an excellent crag with a range of routes to suit different levels of ability, so ideal for the give-it-a-try first timer, the indoor wall regular that wishes to extend their skills outside, to more accomplished climbers that wish to try more difficult routes. It also has some great abseils aswell!

DAY 4

AM: QUAD TREKKING

WINTER HOLIDAY ESCAPE JANUARY 2021

Quad Biking
Hairy coos and possibly red squirrels!

Join us for an inspiring outdoor adventure. Our quad bike treks follow a network of tracks and off-road trails through the magnificent ancient pine woodland and across the heather moorland of this traditional Highland estate with spectacular views of the surrounding mountain landscape. Look out for the estate’s herd of long-horned Highland cows with the chance of seeing wild deer and other local wildlife along the way. The treks are led by experienced and fully trained professional guides who are happy to stop at particularly impressive viewpoints and indicate areas of special interest. There are plenty of photo opportunities – don’t forget to bring a camera!

PM: HIGHLAND GAMES

This will be a great finish to your holiday away, with a genuine Highland Games for the whole group. Try your hand at the caber toss, remembering that it’s not all about distance, but also about the quality and accuracy of your toss in keeping the caber aligned and hopefully turning through 180 degrees. Support your team-mates as they hold the shot in hand and drive up from the legs to power it out to the furthest distance possible
