Our Story


Rebecca’s parents, John and Marie-Christine, first came to Ardmore in 1964.   The remote crofting settlement, three miles from the road in the northwest of Scotland, has been their home ever since.

From here they began a series of ground breaking expeditions, and in 1969 ran the first course at the John Ridgway School of Adventure.   Over 50 years later we continue to run adventure courses and summer camps for young people and adults, using the same mountains and coastline and ethos that has little changed in that time.
