We understand that many of our groups work to a tight budget when making plans for a residential, so we are able to offer a number of self guided activities for you to run yourselves. These sessions are great fun and can often be added on the day, or planned well in advance.

Please Note: We do regularly change our routes for activities such as orienteering, so please make sure you get a copy of the latest maps when you arrive.
