Bushcraft is excellent for learning new skills in the outdoors; workshops include fire making, shelter building and more, and is often combined with other activities to create a fulfilling micro-adventure. 

What will I need? No specialist equipment required.

Climbing & Abseiling

This is a great activity for personal challenge and a real thrill for everyone. There is usually a local crag where an abseil or climbing session can be set up; if groups have been going to a climbing wall, we can help take those skills outside.

What will I need? No specialist equipment required.

Gorge Walking

Gorge Walking is a fun, challenging activity which brings a smile to everyone’s face. It also allows skills which are not apparent in the classroom to become more obvious in a new and exciting environment. We deliver gorge scrambling throughout Scotland and can come to your area.  We have the equipment, professional instructors and everything else required for a fun, challenging and safe adventure.

What will I need? Come dressed with a swimming costume under your clothes, or be ready to change into one. Additionally, bring a pair of shoes that you don’t mind getting wet, and ensure you have a dry pair to change back into.

Mapland Scotland

Learn about Scotland, our geography, our history and many other things using the largest map of Scotland in existance! Mapland Scotland is a giant jigsaw map with topographical detail, and is completely walkover. It is made of 180 lightweight plastic jigsaw pieces and has a total size of 10.8 m by 7.6 m, plus  2.5 m by 1.6 m for Shetland.

We can deliver educational workshops on many subjects such as map reading, scale, symbols, contours, geography, transport links, place-names and heritage, political structures and many others. We have lessons which are linked to the Curriculum for Excellence or which are just for fun (whilst still learning lots!).  

Or we can send you the map and you can use it for your own learning activities. 

Mapland is the largest map of Scotland ever produced! It is printed with Ordnance Survey topographical maps at the 1:50,000 scale (Landranger series) in large jigsaw pieces covering the whole of Scotland – including all the islands. Islands such as St Kilda are in their correct locations and not as insets.

Space requirements: a flat indoor surface (preferably a hard floor) of dimensions 11 m by 8 m, plus another 2.5 m by 1.7 m for Shetland. This is approximately the size of a badminton court and Mapland is suitable for setting up in school and village halls, sports and exhibition centres. If the hall/venue  is needed for other uses, e.g. for school dinners, Mapland can be quickly disassembled and stacked in jigsaw piles at the side of the hall; this takes about 15mins.

What will I need? No specialist equipment required.

Mountain Biking

We offer mountain biking as a guided activity for young people. There are many great trails and trail centres all over Scotland and we can guide groups safely and develop skills at the same time.

What will I need? You will need your own bike, and comfortable athletic clothing or specific cycle wear that you don’t mind getting muddy. Safety equipment provided.

Orienteering & Navigation Skills

Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.

sSuitable for primary and secondary school, our sessions are progressive and start with the basics, possibly in the school grounds, and move onto more challenging courses as the participants progress.

We have professional orienteering equipment and experience in delivering the activity through the medium of Gaelic.


Skiing is a great fun and challenging activity for young people. Spòrs Gàidhlig is able to offer ski lessons to schools and individual groups. 

We have Gaelic speaking instructors who are experienced in delivering skiing, equipment and a passion to see more young people on the slopes.

We can take you skiing at The Lecht, Glen Coe, Glenshee, Nevis Range and Cairn Gorm. These ski centres are not too far from schools and it’s possible to go for the day from most places. 

Prices – per child/young person aged 7-17 – Minimum number in group 6, maximum 8. 

DAYS 1 2 3 4 5
Per person including instruction, equipment and ski pass – travel to the ski centre may also be available.  £50.00 £100.00 £130.00 £160.00 £200.00

Soft Archery

Soft archery is an enjoyable way of experiencing archery which is suitable for all ages and abilities. This can be delivered in any school playground or school hall, and is a great way to round of a week of high impact activities with Spòrs Gàidhlig.

Stand-up Paddleboarding

Stand-up Paddleboarding is one of our most popular activities. We can travel to you and deliver SUP sessions locally and as with all of our activities, our package included use of equipment and wetsuits etc. Most people pick up the core skills very quickly and can stand up in their first session.

Walking, Trekking & Camping Expeditions

Hill Walking

Scotland is the perfect place for walking of all kinds. It might be mountain, glen, coast or urban areas – we have it all. Spòrs Gàidhlig is based at Glenmore Lodge, right in the Cairngorms and the perfect location for walking days and overnight trips. But we can come to you and deliver a full package in a location or your choice.

Our approach is flexible; we can be involved at any stage from planning onwards and will come to you. Our professional and qualified instructors are also able to bring in history and heritage as well as environmental activities.  All of this adds value to a day in the hills.
