Register for our exciting new Out There Award

Out There Award

The Out There Award is an exciting opportunity for young people aged 18-26 to get a free, inspiring and enriching introduction to Scotland’s outdoors.

Thanks to Active Scotland funding, we’re running three-day Out There Awards at several different locations during 2019 for about 120 people in total. Register asap, as courses begin in early June 2019.

We're now accepting applications for the initial two locations. Register your interest at:

Each of the three non-consecutive days will have a different focus:

  • Day One - outdoor skills: navigation, safety, packing, kit and route selection
  • Day Two - a challenging walk: led by a trained Ramblers walk leader 
  • Day Three - volunteering: for example learning how to lead walks and maintain paths.

Everyone who completes the three Out There Award elements will receive:

  • One year of Ramblers membership, worth up to £35.85
  • A Ramblers Scotland neck buff
  • An Out There Award Certificate

We'll also ensure you get a social introduction to their nearest Young Walkers group.

Applicants must be aged between 18-26 and register their interest for all three stages of the award to be considered for inclusion.

Successful candidates will be informed within 48 hours if you have been accepted on to the Out There Award.
