Fettes College, Edinburgh, have worked with Beyond Adventure for 18 years. The Beyond Adventure instructors have a ‘can do’ approach to expeditions, there is always a solution to complete our training objectives. With the unpredictable nature of the Scottish outdoors a robust and dependable safety net is essential. Beyond Adventure have this in place, tried and tested on land and water. Beyond Adventure welcome you with a smile and their professionalism runs from start to finish.
Beyond Adventure have facilitated our DofE Expeditions section by staffing our Silver and Gold participants since 2008. From walking to canoeing expeditions their friendly staff instil confidence and help the pupils fulfil their goals in what can often be a challenging environment. The Beyond Adventure staff are always helpful, in the planning stages communication is straightforward and the process simple.
Thank you so much for your huge organisation, good humour and fine effort in leading our S5 group safely across some very beautiful , (if wet !), parts of central Scotland. The pupils responded very well to your encouraging style of coaching and they all grew as young people which was the central aim. We really enjoyed the experience from you Mark and the input from Alex which were both spot on. I think they really enjoyed and benefited from the several modes of travel and from the different environments.
