Family Hill Walk - Loch Doon (Craiglea Trail)
A full day of hill walking led by our experienced Dolphin House instructors. Transport from Carrick Academy provided.
Children should be in P5 (2022-23 school year) and above - and must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets for adults and children are priced at £7.50 each. As children must be accompanied by an adult, at least 2 tickets (one child, one adult) must be purchased at the time of booking.
Up to 5 tickets can be booked at one time.
The Craiglea Trail begins from the ruins of Loch Doon castle on the shores of the loch, above the north side to give some excellent views over the water.
Minibus transport is included and pick up will be from Carrick Academy at 09:30am - returning around 16.00.
Participants should bring their own packed lunch and bottled water.
Clothing & Equipment
Participants should wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and activity. Layered clothing is best for the conditions - ideally a quick drying base layer, a thin fleece for the mid-layer and a light waterproof as the outer layer.
The terrain is mainly forest tracks and paths - with one steep but short section.
Medical Consent Form
A medical consent form is required for each participant and should be completed ahead of the activity.
