Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
Lockerbie Manor in Dumfries and Galloway is set amidst 78 acres of tranquil woodland and fields inhabited with an abundance of natural wildlife. Our centre is superbly located in South West Scotland with easy access from the M74 motorway.
Built in 1814, Lockerbie Manor has a great history and has retained many of the original features with its master staircase, ornate ceilings and wood panelling. Before it was transformed into a country hotel it was the home of the Marquis of Queensberry, who formulated the "Queensbury" boxing rules in what is now the Dining Room.
Castle Loch, located only 4 miles from the Manor, provides a beautiful backdrop for our canoeing expeditions. A must while visiting Lockerbie Manor!Licence Registration Number L11614 /R1928
Safety is our number one priority. We invest considerable time and money into the safety of all the courses at our residential activity centres in the UK and France. The key factor is the quality of our instructors, from recruitment, to training, to qualifications. Read more about our commitment.

Setting the standard for residential activity centre education
Our purpose is to provide a high quality experience in a safe and caring environment, for the development of young people through the provision of educational adventure courses at our residential activity centres in the UK and France. Many companies concentrate solely on providing fun. We regard this as an opportunity wasted. Of course, fun and new experiences are an important part of any course, but by working with schools we are able to bring the curriculum to life to help motivate and inspire children. Our courses are carefully designed to be fully compatible with the National Curriculum - Physical Education, Outdoor and Adventurous Activities Key stages 2, 3 & 4.
We would like to invite new Party Leaders to visit Manor Adventure and experience at first hand the quality we offer. We are sure you will be very impressed! We strongly recommend that new schools interested in residential activities at Manor Adventure book as early as possible especially those wishing to attend during our peak season period (May-October).
