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.

How to book activities

If you are planning outdoor activities at Alltnacriche you can discuss your activity programme with us then plan it in detail once you are booked. There is plenty of flexibility and we’ll work with you to create a programme that is just right for you and your group.

And that’s not all!

Bushcraft Cooking

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?

Bushcraft Wood Carving

A 6 inch knife, and a piece of wood – what can you create.

Crate Climbing

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”

Land Grab

A wide game which involves everyone. A mash up of clan wars, orienteering and risk. How competitive can you get?
