Outdoor activities at Alltnacriche
There are acres of outdoor space surrounding the centre which has a beautiful hillside setting. Being in the Cairngorms National Park means that mountains, lochs and trails are all on your doorstep.
If you want a bit of a buzz on site you can head to our twin zip line, crate climbing or go mountain biking. Or, if you are looking for more relational activities when there is more time to chat and be together, then bushcraft may be the way to go. Build your shelter, light your fire, bake your bread, make a cuppa, carve some wood.
There are plenty of facilities available that make it easy for you to lead your own activities – we’ll provide a quick induction and all the resources you need. You will also find plenty of indoor activities available too with a fully equipped sports hall and games gallery, great for evening activities, or free time.

As a team are committed to providing activities which are also accessible to those with a disability, or those with special needs.

Once you’ve built the fire, make some bread and cook over the fire.
Can you build a waterproof shelter for you and your team using natural materials?
A 6 inch knife, and a piece of wood – what can you create.
See how well your team does in building the towers and cheer the person at the top.
Scramble up through the gorge, and get wet in the “toilet flush”
A wide game which involves everyone. A mash up of clan wars, orienteering and risk. How competitive can you get?
We can direct you to where the tourists don’t normally go. The centre has a fabulous location and you can literally walk out the door and carry on walking for miles.
Depending on time you have available, on our onsite tracks, or offsite
