So tell me more about Instinctively Wild…

We’re a not-for-profit social enterprise (a community interest company). We are independent from East Lothian Council and it is with their kind permission that we continue to use the fabulous Yellowcraig site.

When it’s not the summer holidays, we are busy running programmes across Edinburgh, the Borders and Dumfries and Galloway. We deliver outdoor programmes for: those accessing NHS mental health services; people who have dementia; families who benefit from getting outdoors; schools – in fact, people from all ages and all backgrounds.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer discounts for multiple family members or those on low incomes. As we are classed as an ‘activity provider’ rather than a ‘care provider’, we unfortunately cannot accept childcare vouchers.



Please see below, for a regular bookings update. We also Tweet via LothianLoop.
