Craggan Outdoors recognised as Scotland’s

‘Best Outdoor Adventure Experience’


Craggan Outdoors, the Grantown-on-Speybased outdoor activity centre, has recently been recognised with a national award. The business was a finalist in four categories in the Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards at Glasgow’s Doubletree by Hilton Hotel on 1st November, & walked away with the accolade of ‘Best Outdoor Adventure Experience’.

Speaking about the achievement, Craggan Outdoors’ Managing Director Keith Ballam said: “We are of course absolutely delighted to have the business recognised in this way. Over the years we’ve been nominated for & won various regional awards, & have previously been a finalist at a national level, but to be named as the ‘Best Outdoor Adventure Experience’ in Scotland goes above & beyond any prior achievement.”

He continued: “What is doubly pleasing about this award, & indeed the other three nominations, is that it’s a public vote in the first instance, so customers have to care enough to take the time to visit the awards website & vote for a business that they feel deserves the recognition. So to achieve that in four categories …. Best Outdoor Activity, Best Customer Service, Best Value Accommodation & of course the one that we won …. was amazing for us, & we’re so grateful to our customers for making that happen.”

Ballam concluded: “After that initial public recognition, it’s then a panel of industry luminaries that judge each category & determine the winner, so fantastic to also receive such recognition from our peers in the leisure industry aswell. The Highlands is of course a fantastic place to live, work, & to visit, & now it can also claim the ‘Best Outdoor Adventure Experience’ in Scotland.”
