"Thank you for a fantastic week! The centre is set up so well to cater for all needs and offers a fantastic range of activities to develop a range of skills, delivered by enthusiastic and very knowledgeable staff. The accommodation and food are of a very high standard. As we were here the week running up to Christmas it was a lovely touch to have the Christmas tree up and have a Christmas dinner for our final nights meal!"

"This has been another incredible week at Ardentinny. Staff and pupils have been catered for with professionalism and care. Broomill group of instructors were articulate, knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm. We can't wait to come back to this beautiful setting. Excellent activities, wonderful food and very comfortable accommodation. Many thanks to Peter, Aidan and all involved in making this a huge success."

"Every year we come to Ardentinny we have a great time! This year did not disappoint! All children had great fun and were introduced to new experiences which will help them in their next two terms with transition work! They have stepped out of their comfort zones and interacted with new peers! Hopefully they will build on these skills when we are back!"
“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Children faced challenges and overcame fears. Instructors were very tuned into needs of individual children. We found all staff very enthusiastic and accommodating. Thank you so much!”

“Hillhead P7s have visited Ardentinny for the last 2 years (2014 & 2015) and we have thoroughly enjoyed our trip. There is a clear and well established working model that has been honed over many years and the opportunities provided for our pupils to develop themselves as individuals in an environment that both supports and challenges in equal measure was fantastic.”
