Five Days of Adventure Activities in Scotland for your DofE Gold Residential
The DofE Gold Residential week in Scotland involves spending 5 days and 4 nights away from home on a shared activity with people you’ve never met before. Active can provide this residential experience at it’s Cairngorms Adventure Centre in Newtonmore. We are an Approved Residential Provider for DofE residentials.
An Overview of the DofE Gold Residential Week
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Residential is a big, exciting and very fulfilling experience. It may be that you want to build on a talent you’ve developed in another section of your award, or to try something completely new such as learning to ski and snowboard. Or, why not join us for a multi activity week which includes a selection of fantastic outdoor adventure activities, such as white water rafting, rock climbing and canyoning.
We ask people to arrive at the Cairngorms Adventure Centre, Newtonmore by 12:00 on the day that the Gold Residential starts. We provide self-catered shared dorm accommodation. The lodge has free wi-fi, large lounges to relax in, a large kitchen to cook in and a client drying room to dry off your wet kit – as you will get wet! There is a supermarket a short walk away for you to buy your provisions.
