About Dalguise

For an outdoor adventure camp in the Scottish Highlands, our residential activity centre at Dalguise is an ideal destination for your Cubs and Scouts. Just north of Perth, Dalguise stands in a tranquil wooded valley five miles north of Dunkeld. Beatrix Potter spent her childhood holidays here in the 19th century and is said to have found inspiration for her books in the surrounding countryside.

The beautiful wooded grounds contain plenty of adventure activities to keep your Cubs and Scouts entertained and challenged all day, and there’s a purpose-built lake for watersports such as raft building and canoeing.

The 18th century mansion house features a wood-panelled baronial hall, and there’s a sports dome in the grounds: both are used for indoor activities and evening entertainment sessions.

Comfortable, en suite accommodation is provided in the converted stables and wooden lodges in the centre grounds.
