Great centre when we visited at Easter. Then went again last month. And again last weekend. First time had a taster session for climbing with Tom which was very fun and enjoyable. Then went to do the aerial adventure course with Anne Rebecca which was scary but very fun going round and on the swing. Thought that Tom and Anne... More

Anne Rebecca was my instructor and she was brilliant. She explained what I needed to know based on my previous experience. And as a result I really enjoyed the session and learnt some useful tips.

Great value for money too very reasonably priced. Cafe that does serve food on site as well. Would definitely return if we are ever up that way... More

We visited here a few times during a week long holiday in Glencoe. First time for coffee (great walk to blackwater reservoir from here), again for an ice climbing taster session and finally for some uninstructed rock climbing. It's a great centre with good facilities, decent shop and nice cafe. The ice climbing taster was great fun for me and... More
