Laggan Outdoor

 

IT WAS with a very heavy heart That we announced the closure of Laggan Outdoor on 1st November, 2020.

Laggan Activity Centre welcomed up to 20,000 visitors a year, launched Europe’s longest zip wire in 2012, the world’s largest human slingshot in 2015 and was crowned Scotland’s Best Outdoor Adventure Experience in the 2017 Scottish Thistle Awards.

In recent years, Laggan Outdoor diversified the customer experience from operating solely as an outdoor adventure activity centre, to offering boutique accommodation and a luxury wedding and conference venue, GG’s Yard, which has capacity for 300 guests.

Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre employ three full time and 14 part time staff and, where possible, staff will be offered alternative opportunities within the company.

As a natural progression to the business development, the beautiful, glass fronted restaurant – Gather – offering a great ‘foodie’ experience using fresh, locally sourced produce has been added to Laggan’s portfolio. With its stunning sea views and glorious sunsets, the new eaterie is expected to appeal to both locals and visitors from the UK and beyond.

 

Duncan McConchie, owner of Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre, said;

“It’s never an easy decision to close something that you started and grew over the last 13 years and had some incredible successes with. Laggan Outdoor has enabled the growth of new business which isn’t affected as much by seasonality and has a much more foreseeable income stream.

“Further investment into the Outdoor Centre made less sense as substantial growth in that, would have led us to costly road upgrades. Instead, we’ll focus on other areas of the business such as ‘Gather’, which will offer diners a great foodie experience 7 days and 3 nights a week and the most enviable seaviews and we’re really looking forward to the new opportunities for everyone with this.

“We’d like to thank all of our customers who have come to Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre over the years and our great staff team. As our video says, this isn’t the end it will be the start of a new beginning as we look to new possibilities that can be grown on this land.”

Our Seaview Snugs, GG’s Yard and Gather, our café / bistro, will remain open all year round. If you have any questions whatsoever, please give us a call on 01557 840217.

 

We have put together a video for you that’s well worth a watch, and we hope it brings back some happy memories!
