YourCASTAWAYexperience is for adult groups only.
It will be based at an idyllic wilderness location right on the shores of Loch Nevis at Ardintigh Highland Adventure Centre in the West Highlands of Scotland, surrounded by rugged, spectacular scenery. There are no roads to the Centre;, we can only be reached by a 2 hour trek across the mountains or a 1 to 1½ hour journey by sea from the fishing port of Mallaig.
The aim of the Castaway experience is to provide a holiday with a difference away from the crowds, 6 days of Fun and Adventure, enjoy team spirit and a challenge, good food and fun, experience a taste of being a Castaway and learn the art of survival, breathe in the fresh mountain air, leaving Ardintigh with a sense of achievement and a reinforced inner confidence in the great outdoors.
Castaway from the stresses and strains of everyday routine, we are offering "Six days of fun and adventure" away from it all in the wilderness. We would be delighted to include your own Adult Group of minimum 8 to maximum 16 persons on one of our unique Castaway Experiences.
The Castaway experience includes practical outdoor skills including Raft Building, Micro Navigation, Lobster Fishing, Shelter Building, Haggis Hunting, Clay shooting, there will be an overnight expedition to the Island, sleeping under the stars and much more, try your hand at rowing Tom's famous Atlantic rowing boat in Loch Nevis or perhaps you' would like to view the world's smallest sailing boat the "Giltspur" in which Tom sailed across the North Atlantic Ocean, or the world's only whale shaped boat Moby.
