Are you aged 18-26 and keen to enjoy Scotlands great outdoors on foot? Then the Out There Award is perfect for you.

Our free Out There Award will help kick-start your journey into the outdoors, while helping you meet people, boost your CV, have fun and build your confidence along the way.

The award is split over three non-consecutive days, each with a different focus: outdoor skills, a challenging walk and volunteering.

Each day is designed to help break down the barriers that sadly stop many young adults from enjoying the outdoors while helping you meet a new network of like-minded people. Click here for details of the daily itineraries.

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

A full year of Ramblers membership, worth up to £35.85

A Ramblers Scotland neck buff

An Out There Award Certificate

A Ramblers Scotland tote bag

And 1,000 Young Scot Reward points!

Youll also unlock access to Ramblers Scotlands five young walking groups, made up of friendly people who love walking, social events and getting out there.

Weve already enjoyed brilliant days with enthusiastic young adults in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Tayside and Edinburgh.


Glasgow programme

Heres what to expect during the three days of your Out There Award...

Day one: outdoor skills - Saturday 1st August 2020 10am - Pollokshaws Burgh Hall

This is a fun chance to pick up valuable outdoor skills in a friendly environment, while also getting to know your fellow Out There Award participants.

Rather than sitting and listening to us speak, well run fun group activities that help you learn about the important skills needed to safely enjoy great days outdoors in Scotland.

Well cover topics in the morning including:

Where to walk in Scotland

Outdoor nutrition, equipment and clothing

Navigation skills

How to plan a walk

Then well all head outdoors and gradually put these skills into practice on a gentle walk planned and led by you and your fellow participants.

The activities are designed to prepare you for the next exciting award day.

Day two: a challenging walk - Saturday 8th August 2020 Planned and led by the Out There Award participants

Using everything we learned on the skills day, the group will select and plan an appropriate challenging walk. This could be a long-distance route, a scenic coastal trail or an iconic mountain. We'll be either car-pooling or using a minibus to reach the location.

In the company of a trained Ramblers walk leader, we will work as a team to complete this challenge.

Previous Out There Award groups have tackled long distance walks along the West Highland Way and at the Falls of Clyde, while some have even bagged their first Munros in the Cairngorms.

Day three: volunteering - Sunday 9th August 2020 - Conservation Tasks: The Borders Forest Trust

Volunteering is the lifeblood of the Ramblers, and we want our Out There Award groups to get the chance to give something back to Scotlands great outdoors.

We'll be rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck into a volunteer activity that we can be proud of completing at the end of the day. We'll be volunteering in the Scottish Borders with the brilliant Borders Forest Trust undertaking conservation tasks. Again, we'll either car-pool or use a minibus to reach the location.

However, it's not just hard work! Our groups often find this the most rewarding day of the scheme, as its a chance to work together on great projects, with interesting people, in stunning locations.

Examples of past volunteering sessions includes working with the Mountains and the People charity to improve the paths on the Cobbler near Arrochar. Participants have also planted native trees with the Borders Forest Trust and helped protected Scotlands wild places.


By the end of the three days we hope you will have learned new skills, challenged yourself, increased your employability, had fun and made friends.

Most importantly, we want you to feel confident and inspired to continue your journey #OutThere in Scotland.
