Only The Brave – Adventure Retreat in Scotland



Strictly ending at midnight on Black Friday, get your ticket now for a steal with £100 off!



Four years ago, John and I took a trip to Scotland to get away for a couple of days, hone our skills in the mountains and stay in a lovely cottage. At the end of it all we decided to put it on as a retreat and Only The Brave was created.

We’ve run more of these retreats than any other event.

In January, you have the opportunity to join us.

After meeting up in Kirkcudbright at the cottage and getting to know your new friends we order pizza and relax for the evening near a log fire. Next morning we’re out early and up into the mountains.

Whether you take the challenging route with John or the more relaxed, knowledge based hike with me, you’ll experience the weather and terrain that Scotland has in store.

It’s always been an adventure and has lots of times presented unexpected puzzles to navigate.
