Abernethy Trust

Service Organisation | UNITED KINGDOM

At Abernethy, we believe that shared adventures in the outdoors create incomparable opportunities to transform lives.  Since 1971, Abernethy Trust has provided adventure residential experiences through our outdoor adventure centres situated in wild yet accessible locations across Scotland.  Through hospitality and adventure, we equip our guests with relationships, experiences, and character that will arm them for life.  Every week we see people changed over the course of just a few days at one of our centres. 

As well as creating excellent adventures, we cultivate connected communities.  As we live these adventures with our guests, we help increase well-being in young people as they see who they are, grow confidence in their value and go on to live life to the full.  We thrive on seeing young and old face new challenges, overcome fears, and learn more about who they are.    

The team at Abernethy are all Christians, and, we serve, love and learn from others regardless of their beliefs.  Our faith fuels our belief that each and every person is unique and valuable.  While our faith motivates our own lives, we respect that others may not hold the same convictions.  Our guests are welcomed and listened to by a team who go above and beyond to deliver excellent quality for all.    

We have worked with primary schools, high schools, special schools, colleges, church groups, youth and uniformed groups – and more!  Each year, the centres host approximately 12,000 guests between them.  Whether it’s outdoor learning, team building and leadership formation or making connections between morals and values and how we live our lives using the rich resources of our Christian traditions via RME and the CfE… Or a challenging wilderness experience in order to grow in faith and fellowship, we will work with you to meet your objectives through the context of the outdoor environment.    

This is Abernethy: we live the adventure, we inspire the adventurer.
