About Àban

Àban is a Scottish outdoor education charity and award winning social enterprise.

We run Scotland's only independent DofE Open Award group and weekly free-to-access outdoor youth groups for biking, mountaineering, and open water swimming.

We offer a range of commercial activities, which helps pay for all of the activities above. These activities follow the same core principle of positive local adventures. Made up of Duke of Edinburgh's Award provision, private guiding, Holiday Camps, and our outdoor equipment charity shop on eBay. There's something for everyone!
