Are you looking to get out the city or immerse yourself in the woods and wilderness? We offer a range of bespoke outdoor sessions for your group to get out and explore their natural surroundings. We can take groups away camping, go on walking trips through the woods or hire some bikes and see the natural world from a different perspective. We have experience delivering a range of trips, walks and cycling experiences, either as one-off celebrations, multiple days or weekly opportunities.

We can take the pressure off of planning, we’ll simply arrange a time to meet with you to discuss your groups needs and do all the planning from there, making your experience as comfortable and hassle free as possible.

We have detailed some options below but if you don’t see what you’re looking for please get in touch and we’d be happy to tailor to your needs.


We love to take groups away camping, it is the full outdoor experience spending 24 hours outdoors, or more, learning about the full camping experience and experiencing the many benefits that a night under the stars provides. Our trips are fully planned for you from start to finish, we’ll cover all transport, food, activities and equipment. Giving you a fully immersive, social and exciting experience outdoors. Our trips encourage groups to disconnect, with little or no technology available, except that used for safety, we offer the experience to reconnect to nature and thrive outdoors. We have delivered trips for youth groups, adult only groups as well as summer experiences for a range of children’s service If you’d like to experience some camping but not sure where to start please get in touch.

We also have a range of camping equipment available for groups to hire if you’d like to take the hassle out of buying your own kit. You can find more information here.


We are absolutely spoiled for choice in Scotland for outdoor walking opportunities, there are endless trails, woodlands and hills to explore and we can create a fun day or full programme to experience as much as possible. We can provide our own transport for groups of up to 15 or organise larger away days. Our walking can follow in the footsteps of pioneers like John Muir or explore the many lochs that are dotted throughout the country. Walking is great for your physical and mental health and we’ll be sure to make our trips fun and exciting.


​If you’re not sure about camping and want something more than a walk, we have organised a range of outdoor experience days from trips to Go Ape followed by a woodland walk, gorge walking in Scottish Glens or a Park Treasure Hunt designed to get you actively exploring the public space. We can organise outdoor trips for all ages, groups sizes and abilities. We can arrange a time to meet to see what exciting opportunities we can create for your group.


This is a great way to get out and explore your environment. We have delivered a range of cycling trips throughout the years linked to woodlands or local greenspaces we can plan cycling days away for your group, either leaving from your front door or somewhere central or traveling to hire bikes elsewhere. We can take you on a guided cycle with a range of outdoor options. Keep an eye on our events page for updates on our Bikes and Bushcraft trips as well as trips offered by our friends and colleagues at Woodland Wheels.
