Only The Brave – Adventure Hiking/Adventure Expedition – Scotland


28th-30th October 2022

Do awesome things! – Come with us to the mountains of Scotland for an expedition weekend of adventure, excitement and education.


Want to do awesome stuff and have awesome experiences?

Come and spend a wild weekend with John and me in the Scottish mountains.

We’ll have a quality takeaway and a night in a nice comfy cottage at Castle Creavie Farm (in the middle of nowhere, Dark Skies Park and all that) with a real fire.

Next morning you have two options:

Adventure Hiking

John will take you out on a big adventure, hiking into the Galloway Mountains. This will be a hard day! You will most probably discover your new ‘limit’!

Adventure Expedition

I’ll take you for a good trek over The Wall, then we’ll tackle The ‘Bank’ and off over the mountains to camp in the wild, well away from what they call civilisation. This won’t just be a nice mooch in the hills!

Either way, you’ll be pushed. It will be tough and as always, you WILL have an adventure.


Note: Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right!

“This weekend was an absolute life saver!

I wasn’t in a great place mentally and went away on this retreat and had the best time, the organisation from John and Chris was amazing and even when things got tricky John quickly and effectively used his skills to ensure we were all safe when the weather warnings came in!

The place we stayed was incredible and just generally the best mental and physical break you could need!”
