My 10 year old son had a fantastic time with West End Adventure yesterday at the stunning location on Loch Lomond. He got off the minibus with the biggest smile on his face and raved about it all the way home. As an extremely shy boy who is not very sporty, I was a bit concerned about him but needn't have been. He loved the whole day, from paddle boarding on the river (including the odd fall into the water, accidental and deliberate I'm told 😂) to trying archery for the first time. What a day he had. My only disappointment is not having a photo to capture the fun. Thanks to all the instructors. Definitely highly recommend. We will be booking again soon.

My son has just experienced his first camp with West End Adventure. He is a child who doesn’t normally enjoy busy school based camps comprising of games & craft activities, so was somewhat apprehensive about joining this camp. It was therefore a joy to pick him at the end of his first day, very happy, albeit tire, excited for the next day. He has already asked when he can go again. I found all the staff very friendly & helpful & the base at Luss is a wonderful environment to host such a camp & to provide the children with an introduction to a range of outdoor activities.

Fantastic event for World Mental HealthDay. I went on my own which in itself was a little nerve wracking, but I met lots of others in the same position. We learned the basic skills of kayaking from Julie and practised down the Forth and Clyde Canal. At the end we played a fun game to bring out our competitive side. A fun yet mindful experience which I would love to repeat. Thank you so much!

My child was extremely excited for the holiday week and she was not disappointed she got to do raft building and went on and on about how funny the instructor was. She keeps asking when she can go again

My 2 children (age 9 and 11) were booked for 2 days October week 2021. I’ve read the previous reviews and sadly I’m not sure what happened during my Childrens experience however they returned very upset and quite shaken by the experience. I contacted Westend immediately they returned however no one had the courtesy to get in touch with me or respond. My kids experience was such I cancelled the second day (losing £88). My children described an experience which resulted in one of the children seriously hurt. So much do mountain rescue we’re called and this girl broke her ankle/leg. My kids described instructors who in the way were twisting the steering wheel of the minibus saying ‘let’s party’ (my daughter has autism and vestibular issues which I highlighted to the instructors and gets travel sick. She was wearing her motion aids and was stick affected). There were no water activities, kayaking, paddle boarding therefore the request to bring a swim suit, towel and prepare for a wet suit was void. At the site the kids were told to leave their bags behind. They were not promoted or reminded to take midge repellent (my kids had theirs in their pack) so much so both kids were covered in bites upon return. We are seasoned walkers and walked the WHW peak midge season and my girls never had bites the way they returned from their WestEnd trip. Upon arriving at their ‘activity’ a walk in caves. The girls were taken (without torches/lights for them or instructors) to an area called ‘the coffin’ and were walking/climbing in darkness. My girls reported being quite terrified. It was here the girls fated fall happened. My kids said the instructors had no first aid kit, torches, emergency plan and the kids were waiting for at least 1/2 hours. My daughter was so shaken she called me to be told by the instructor to not tell me. This is not ok. The trip ended after this with waiting around. I am an experienced adventurer and risk assessment is key. Preparation is paramount. I simply would not risk a second day hence cancellation. My kids said the instructor verbalised he had never been on the walk before which in my experience with kids so young a ‘reiki’ and pre-planning essential. My daughters friend travelled 4 hours for the experience thinking it would be like a daytime ‘PGL’ my kids attend there often and are competent activity goers. They both were too frightened to return. The review is 0/5.
