The Reflective leader course in La Jarilla , Andalucia was  the most amazing CPD experience I have ever had in over 30 years of teaching.

Within a small group who quickly learned to trust each other, we were challenged to consider our own leadership ability, style and skill  through a carefully thought out , well balanced programme of activities, all of which took place outdoors in the Andalucian sunshine.

Irene and Ally have put such a lot of thought into the course.

From their choice of setting at La Jarilla in its beautiful secluded countryside location in Andalucia ( complete with its own wine cellar !!)   to the balance of work and reflection time ( by the pool)  this was a unique week which has given me an opportunity to network with teachers from the farthest north of Europe(Iceland)  to the farthest East (Turkey) .

Thank you for a fab week and for the challenges you set me .

I return to work with so many ideas to share and a real desire to expand our international links with European countries to benefit our young people and broaden their horizons.  I  will definitely recommend your other courses to colleagues, anyone who turns down an opportunity to do this course must be mad!!!

Welcome to Adventurascotland

Where we offer in the first instance, is

a journey with a difference, a journey of discovery

Our philosophy is simple enough…. beautiful locations, fabulous walking, companionship, and time to discover a deeper self-awareness en route.

The remote landscapes of Scotland offer peace, beauty and relaxation; we offer journeys through these stunning landscapes, with the additional benefit of time for personal reflection and self-discovery.

The journeys – in secluded valleys and woodlands against the dramatic backdrop of mountain scenery – unleash the powerful potential of activity to ‘free the mind’. They allow space to think, away from the stresses of everyday life.

In the great outdoors, you have a flexibility and freedom to participate as you feel appropriate, unlike in more formal indoor locations. The opportunity to reflect and take stock comes through the activities en route, on themes such as communication and interpersonal relationships. This allows for personal time, space and reflection as well as interaction with others as the journey progresses.
