Alladale Wilderness Reserve

Since 2007, when they began providing an education programme, thousands of children have benefitted from going to Alladale and taking part in the tailor made experience. Local teenagers enjoy a plethora of activities including hiking, orienteering, bushcraft, campfire cooking, tree planting and much more. All the while, they improve their understanding of the natural world, ecology and conservation - and take home key life skills. The students have the chance to connect to nature, which hopefully ignites a passion and desire to help protect wild places.

We believe education is a fundamental building block of the conservation process. An integral part of the Alladale vision is our professionally managed Alladale Wilderness Experience, which offers a specially designed environmental journey for local school children, expertly led by instructors from Àban adventure learning community.
