We plan to start building a brand new facility at Abernethy Barcaple, and it's designed to improve our guest experience, build links with the local community and get more young people active.
This indoor sports area with courts for basketball, badminton and volleyball will add to Barcaple's offering for groups as well as being Dumfries & Galloway's first and only indoor climbing venue. It'll also provide a wet day option to the region's youth and many tourists!
Teacher, Lesley Munro, Depute Head of Crombie Primary School says, “Having a sports hall would be a fantastic asset to the centre…"
Local AMI Mountain Guide, Colin Reilly, says, Dumfries & Galloway is underprovided for in climbing facilities. For training venues and venues for introducing children to climbing there is just nothing, so a purpose-built climbing wall would be amazing.”
While we have been given some grants from Trusts & Foundations, we have a shortfall and would value your help in meeting this financial gap.
Abernethy operates four Christian Adventure Centres in some of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. Abernethy is first and foremost a Christian organisation seeking to share the Christian Faith through the great outdoors and excellent hospitality. We are passionate about what we do.
