Firbush trips

Each year a few of the Student Representatives organise a weekend trip to the Firbush Outdoor Centre.

Firbush is situated around 80 miles from Edinburgh on the picturesque shore of Loch Tay, near Killin, in the Southern Highlands of Scotland.  It provides the perfect opportunity to get to know other students in the School of Informatics and try out activities you might never have tried before. Activities on offer at Firbush include:

  • sailing
  • windsurfing
  • river canoeing
  • canoeing
  • kayaking
  • mountaineering
  • winter mountaineering
  • hillwalking
  • mountain biking
  • cross country skiing
  • orienteering

There are usually between 30-40 places available on the trip; transport to the site is arranged, and the trip is paid for using School funding (a returnable deposit is required to secure your place on the trip).

The Student Reps will be in touch when they're planning the next visit to Firbush.
