So... whilst I was out Nordic Ski-ing over at Laggan area, I passed an old village hall which RAF Mountain Rescue from Kinloss and Leuchars used to frequent on their training weekends & rescue deployments. Which, made me think! how many Adventure Training centres has the Military actually lost..?

1. JSATI Llanwrst - Open.
2. JSMTC Tulloch - Closed to normal AT courses but open for use through Army Edinburgh.
3. JSMTC Ballachulish - Open.
4. JSMTC Kingussie - Closed.
5. JSMTC Dundonnel - Closed.
6. JSMTC Fort George - Closed.
7. RAF FDC Grantown - Open.
8. Norwegian Lodge - Closed.
10. Para Hut (Glencoe) - Closed.
11. LLRP school Weingarten - Closed.
12. M&AW Cadre Training facility, Kinlochleven - Closed.
13. M&AW Cadre St Just - Closed. (But will stand corrected on that one)
14. Silberhutte - Closed.
15. BOBC Norway - Closed.
16. Blaen Pennant - Closed.

Capel Curig was open a couple of years back. Also, whilst not quite Adventure Training, there's Indefatigable on Anglesey which is an excellent climbing centre. Halton camp is also used as a base for training in the Lake District and they have some of their own instructors.

As I remember it was a ski place up in Scotland, possibly used as a mountain rescue......

The building belonged to the RAF so possible RAF adventure training place

Yes mate, I think you are thinking of Nethybridge just outside of Aviemore. Still there buddy but it's a little like Capel or Tulloch(EX JSMTC Station) for RAF Personnel administered from Lossie... The military also owned the Norwegian Lodge at Glenmore, The RA had a small hut there also and Rothiemurchas remains as it is...
