Educational Breaks

The Craigmore Centre is part of Gartmore Estate, which is a not-for-profit charitable trust with education as its core value. Here we provide a venue where young people can realise their potential and develop their skills in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment.

The Craigmore Centre in Scotland is prodominently used for educational breaks including: music residentials, revision residentials and activity holidays.

Music Residentials

Our conference hall (also known as our music hall) is the perfect room for orchestras and music groups to rehearse and practice. It has plenty of space and great acoustics.

Revision Residentials

Popular in the run up to exam time. Gartmore Estate is an excellent environment for young people to revise. The Craigmore centre offers plenty of room for students to be able to concentrate on their studies. The sports hall and games room are perfect for exercising and down time and there is plenty of wonderful outdoor space for walks and activiies, great for clearing the mind after all that hard work.

Activity Holidays

We have a number of partnerships with outdoor companies in The Trossachs National Park and can offer excellent activity holidays. These include: wilderness treks, junior orienteering, bush skills, canoeing, kayaking and bat watching. Contact us for further information.
