Gartan Outdoor Education and Training Centre is so well placed in the very heart of Donegal that we can make best use of several locations and environments for our wide range of activities. Many take place on our wonderful 87 acres of woodland estate, or on beautiful Gartan Lough. A testing white water river enters the lake from the Derryveagh Mountains to the west, and the River Leannan flows away to the east. Those mountains, just across the lake, provide the view from our West wing, and are also the location of many of our mountain activities. The splendid Donegal coast, with its many islands off shore, is close to hand, and provides the stunning natural environment for our sea kayaking, surfing and ‘Coastabout’ courses. Many of our sailing and windsurfing courses are also held at the coast.
