Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Posted: Fri 29 Oct 2021

We run the most affordable DofE training programme in Scotland. How do we do it? It's all down to our fabulous volunteers who give up so much of their free time to support the Open Award group, coupled with our Ten Principles. We don't use pricey minibuses, instead using public transport to reach the amazing expedition areas on our doorstep.

You’ll meet folk from other schools, or who are maybe already at college or in work. For the expeditions, our ethos is low cost and local, so they’re done either on foot using the Inverness – Kyle of Lochalsh train as a way to get into the hills, or by canoe. Either way the focus is on you as a young adult coming along and doing your best with our support.
