Our programme concludes with a chance to use all the skills you have learnt on a 5-day bothy residential to our stunning private bothy in Glen Etive, where we’ll focus on communication and team building games. Every trip ends with pizza night, cooking in our own clay oven with the mountains as our backdrop.

Following the bothy trip, we’ll arrange to get back together to look at the photos and chat through our experience and you’ll get a chance to have a 1-2-1 with the programme leader.
