We are in the process of redeveloping this website and plan to launch the new site on 15 October.

Enjoy a week of wildlife safaris around the coastline of this 'wee' Scottish isle. As well as rock pooling, seal watching and crabbing, we will also spend time on the beach playing games and relaxing. Each evening we will have a fun activity for the children, including lantern making, stargazing and a campfire. Fingers crossed, there's also the chance we might see a dolphin if we are really lucky on our boat trip around the island. This break runs concurrently with our Snorkelling, Sand and Sailing week, enabling families who have children who want to go on different breaks to come away together.

Extra nights

If you are interested in staying at the Centre for additional nights, before or after the course, please contact the Centre for availability and costs which start from £25 for B&B, or £40 full board (we can confirm B&B availability 4 weeks prior to the course). Sunday rate £35.
