Benmore – so what is it?

Benmore is an outdoor educational centre in Dunoon, a short ferry ride from Greenock, near Glasgow. It’s owned by Edinburgh Council & offers residential activity courses for schools, families and groups. It’s a fantastic weekend to try new sports, meet other families and hear the regular refrain from the kids “come on Mum/Dad, you can do it”. We arrive on Friday night, and are given outdoor kit and instructions. On the Saturday you’ll be divided into groups of about eight, with an instructor, and will be given four activities to experience over the next two days.

For many years now P5-7 pupils and parents have spent an exciting September weekend together at the Benmore Outdoor Activity Centre.

We are now making arrangements for the 2017 trip. If you know you want to come or would like more information please take a look through the attached application form and get in touch as soon as possible.

Kristi and I are regularly at the school gate or you can contact us by email  ( and phone (07717206369).
We’re really looking forward to sharing the Benmore experience with newcomers and regulars again this year.
