About Dalguise

This inspiring Highland hideaway will help your primary school group discover just how much fun learning can be. Dalguise adventure centre is set in a beautiful wooded valley, just five miles from Dunkeld and is the perfect setting for some motivational adventure activities.

Your pupils will enjoy a huge range of activities on land and water. There are some fantastic learning opportunities around the centre too. Beatrix Potter spent her childhood holidays here and is said to have found inspiration for her books from exploring the countryside nearby.
