"We chose Outlook Adventure Scotland to organise the expedition section of our Duke of Edinburgh Bronze open group in Dunblane. They put together a comprehensive package, including a training day, practice and qualifying expeditions, at a very competitive price. From the first meeting we were reassured by their professionalism and the wealth of experience they brought from their military background. We were right to feel confident as they were professional throughout, communication was excellent, and the young people had a fantastic and successful experience from training through to expedition. We would have no hesitation using Outlook Adventures again for any similar activity".
