Loch Eil, The Highlands

Set in extensive grounds on the shores of Loch Eil, this is our most remote outdoor education centre and a former shooting lodge once owned by the Chief of the Clan Cameron. Close to Fort William and some of Europe's most beautiful and remote true wilderness, it’s ideal for adventure, walking and canoeing while nearby Ben Nevis is the venue for many of our climbing activities.
