Ardentinny Centre, situated on the west coast of Scotland is superbly placed within the range of Argyll mountains and sea lochs to provide outstanding outdoor learning, but it’s also an excellent location for your self-programmed course. With a fantastic diversity of locations that produce memorable courses, our water sports range from keel-boat sailing and canoe river journeys to mountain based sports at up to four distinct crag locations.

We pride ourselves on producing great courses and constructing strong working relationships with returning clients and our own staff.
