Everything You Need For Your SAS Trip

We appreciate how tricky it can be to get a school trip organised, that is why we have
created this handy list with everything you need. 


Scottish Adventure School Insurance is included as standard on our trips, unless otherwise stated.

Our insurance has been tailor-made to match all the activities we provide and includes additional cover and protection for schools and groups.



You may have a preferred insurer that you have worked with previously, though there are many different travel insurance policies available. Please check the cover carefully to ensure that it meets your needs and provide us with details of your insurer.

Please note that the cost of your trip will not change.



As with any type of insurance, it is important that you read the policy document to check it is suitable for all members of your group.

Risk Assessments

Once you have booked your residential activity holiday with us and you are happy with your itinerary, we will send you all the Risk Assessments that you will require for your stay. These Risk Assessments will cover all the activities, accommodation and fire safety protocols.

  4. If an individual could not attend the course, we would not make a charge as per 2 above. 

  5. If an individual had to leave part way through a course, then we would invoice for the proportion of the course that they attended and for any activities in which they took part. 

  6. If the whole group could not attend due to COVID, Government or PKC guidance, we would not charge and the deposit would be refunded. 

  7. The agreement does not give rise to any rights under the Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Act 2017 for any third party to enforce or otherwise invoke any term of the Contract.

Medical & Health

Every person who attends The Scottish Adventure School is a priority. Prior to your group joining us, you will receive a consent form that each parent/ guardian is required to fill in for their child to attend. The forms are treated with the strictest confidence and are referred to for all dietary, health and medical requirements for your trip.

Covid Safe

Although restrictions have been easing since 2022, we still have plenty of safety protocols in place to ensure a safe and fun adventure experience for our groups. We have hand santising dispensers located around both accommodation buildings and ask that if anyone is showing signs of Covid-19 prior in the week prior to their residential activity holiday, that they take a test to reduce risk of spreading it and to protect their colleagues/ friends. Anyone who unable to attend due to Covid-19 will have their deposit returned.
