Where the wild Atlantic Ocean swells, where waves sing on to the shoreline and eagles soar above craggy cliffs, nestled between Skye and the Ardnamuchan peninsula, sparsely populated, energy is supplied only by sun, wind and water and the land is owned entirely by the community. The Isle of Eigg offers solitude, wildness and adventure for all those who seek it.
Our trip will run from Sunday 9th – Friday 14th July 2023. During out week we will take part in activities to explore the island, engage with the local community and get involved with some conservation work alongside the ranger service. You can expect a week filled with adventure, good food and stunning scenery. The evenings will be relaxed with beach barbecues, stories, games and island summer sunsets.
This can count towards your Duke of Edinburgh Gold Residential if you are looking for opportunities to work towards that. Please see the Duke of Edinburgh website for full information on requirements for the Gold Residential section. You can of course join us even if you aren’t working on your Duke of Edinburgh Award. This event is suitable for young people aged 14-25.
A full itinerary will be sent out in advance of the week.
