Through our residential programme at Glenmore Lodge near Aviemore, we offer an all-inclusive experience which is competitively priced and open to all. Our residentials are available in Gaelic and English. School groups are very welcome and the facilities are excellent at the Lodge.
We also offer a wide range of activities which can be delivered in your area. This can be tailored to your needs and be part of a wider in-school programme.
We travel to you, bring our equipment and provide activities in your area. This makes it easier for a larger number of participants to take part without the need to organise travel. We have our own minibus and can provide local travel to and from the activity site. (This is not available currently due to COVID-19 measures in place).
Our Autumn 2020 programme combines two activities – Mapland Alba and Orienteering. This can be standalone and work very well this way but can also be used together to develop understanding of scale, maps, navigation and spatial awareness.
We are hoping that the 20-21 ski season will be a good one and are taking bookings for lessons right now. Our package includes instruction, equipment and lift passes and we work at all five of the Scottish Ski Centres.
Spòrs Gàidhlig is an Approved Activity Provider for the expedition section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. We can offer all three levels at practice and qualification stages as well as training and planning sessions. We provide a full package including equipment.
Spòrs Gàidhlig is unique in that we can offer all of our activities in Gaelic and English. We understand Gaelic Medium Education and how schools work. We also welcome learners new to the language both at primary and secondary levels. Our activities are a great way to introduce Gaelic to young people.
Spòrs Gàidhlig was formed in 2015 and launched at the Mòd Nàiseanta in Oban that year. Gaelic is at the heart of everything we do and all of our staff are fluent in the language.
We have an AALA licence and work in partnership with Glenmore Lodge, Scotlands National Outdoor Training Centre which is situated in Glenmore, in the heart of the Cairngorms. We are indebted to Glenmore Lodge for the support they have provided over the years and are very fortunate to be associated with such a prestigious organisation.
We offer training bursaries to Gaelic speakers who want to deliver activities in Gaelic. In return, we ask that all recipients are willing to work for Spòrs Gàidhlig when they are able to.
