A Short History

Bigfoot Adventures Ltd is an outdoor adventure company owned and run by Jim and Mahri Prince. We have close on 30 years experience delivering outdoor skills training, team building, leadership and personal development courses in a range of activities on rivers and mountains. It all started back in 1991 with a handful of bikes, canoes, climbing gear and two young children. We built a small bunkhouse next to the family home and ran various outdoor training courses making good use of our local rivers, mountains and trails. A range of corporate training packages were devised and we developed a mobile service so we could operate from hotels and other venues throughout Scotland.

In 1994 we bought the old Boultenstone Hotel and began the building work to convert the property and grounds into a residential outdoor activity centre. We were proud to achieve "Investors in People" status amongst a variety of other small business awards. After 10 very successful years, in 2004, we sold the activity centre and began working seasonally concentrating on D of E expeditions and corporate training.

From Spring 2021 onwards we will no longer be offering D of E expeditions however
Jim will continue to work as a technical adviser, mountain leader, paddlesports coach, MTB instructor and D of E assessor. Click here
