An outdoor centre near Dunoon, Benmore House is a good choice for all kinds of large gatherings and youth groups. Duke of Edinburgh, scouts, guides, schools and sports teams will find Benmore House ticks all of the boxes for young adventurers. Just 15 minutes from Dunoon, the pretty Botanic Gardens location is convenient with good transport links from Glasgow.
Benmore House offers a wide range of on site activities including forest adventure and a climbing wall, although a more tailored approach is possible for those who need bespoke experiences such as Duke of Edinburgh Award groups. Off-site sailing, water sports, walking, caving and mountain biking are also easy to organise with our experts at Benmore. The team are only too happy to advise and discuss specific requirements before arrival.
The centre has excellent facilities for field work and follow-up indoor learning. Various rooms can be set up as classrooms or events spaces with projectors and interactive whiteboards. The lecture room in the main house doubles up as a games room in down time, with pool, table tennis and football, very popular with the youngsters. The common room is a great disco room for an end of course celebration and party.
Self catering is an option for youth groups although the in-house chefs are on hand if required, to organise buffet-style meals and packed lunches. Meals are eaten in one of two large dining rooms. Accommodation is a handy mix of dorms for 6 to 10 in bunks as well as some en suite twins for teachers or group leaders.
