This week we have been working with a group of young people from Oban on the island of Tiree. The whole week has been such fun and very active. The weather has been amazing, enabling us to offer a wide range of adventure activities on Tiree, such as surfing, coasteering, climbing, kayaking and a great days walking over the small but perfectly shaped hills and of course along the most tropical white shell beaches. Hebridean Pursuits Ltd offer residential activity courses for young people based on Mull and on Tiree.
HPL are running another BRAWA Coasteering skills training course on October 1st and 2nd, based in Dundee. We then have access to some fantastic sea cliffs to Coasteer on. This open course is designed for anyone interested or currently working in this challenging and exciting environment. At only £140 per person this is great value. The course concentrates on the guidelines as recommended by the NCC and is widely recognised as some of the best and current training you can receive in the UK. Jumping, journeying, swimming, rescues, gear, climbing, play spots and much more! Don't miss it, it will be a fun weekend!
Just back from an amazing week on Mull working with a fabulous bunch of young people! They star in this new film about the Roses Project. This week has been one of the best residentials I have ever worked on in 21 years because the young people were so brilliant, thanks guys!

HPL /Roses Project are again running a respite adventure activity residential for a group of young carers from Perth. Based at Tavool House Outdoor Centre they have been taking part in a variety of activities such as Canyoning, Kayaking, Climbing and Hill walking. Part of their week has been to train towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards, so allot of time has been spent learning about map work, compasses and expedition planing. The weather has been fabulous with wall to wall sunshine every day!
HPL has two weeks available at Tavool House this coming autumn for groups for adventure courses or family holidays, and Tavool is still available for New Years and Christmas, if you are looking for self catering accommodation for the celebrations.
A short film from this week will follow at the end of the week.
I have just had some photos sent of Strathallan School's adventures on Mull during a Roses Project residential at Tavool House. Just a couple of watery based shots, coasteering and Canyoning, the pupils had a fantastic time Climbing, Coasteering, Gorge walking etc.
One of their teachers commented on our feed back forms that Tavool was a 'beautiful location, outstanding hospitality, inclusive activities and the 'non-outdoor' children have really enjoyed the adventure activities'. Thanks to Liam and Dan our instructors for making it such a great week and the photo's.
37 pupils and staff from Hordle Walhampton School returned for their annual stay at Tavool House Outdoor Centreon Mull this week. The Roses Project instructional team were working again with a great bunch of pupils form this fine school. The 'Tavool Challenge' was on again, Hill walking on Ulva, Tyrolean Rope traverses, Gorge Scrambling, canyoning, Orienteering, night lining and exploring the coastline were all thrown into a very energetic two days of adventure and we even saw two Otters today! It is always a pleasure to work with such polite and enthusiastic young people, thanks to everyone for such a great few days!

On Monday I headed into the Ben More Canyon with Liam and Dan to have a look at all things canyoning.This Canyon trip is a sweet little canyon hidden from view and surprisingly deep. It offers good jumps, abseils and swims and amazing scenery.
HPL offer canyoning trips down this fantastic slot and other adventure activities such as guided hill walking, coasteering, sea kayaking and rock climbing on Mull. Why not check out Tavool House Outdoor Centre for activity holidays on Mull.
