Planning AT for a Bunch O' Clerks

I’m in much need of an SJAR moment, so I’ve bravely volunteered to plan this years AT, we have only just come back from an awesome weeks Skiing in Les Contamines. We are based in Wales so don’t particularly want to do AT here. I was just wondering if you guys had any recommendations? Much appreciated!
 

acrab!

Rothiemurchas lodge in the Cairngorms, pretty good in the summer. All depends if your AT budget is being cut i suppose!
 
Close by is the lodge at Kinguisse. Right next to Aviemore and on the doorstep of the Cairngorms. Slightly further South, Carlisle Castle will be able to put you up. There's a Cadet HQ there with excellent facilities ... and right near the town centre.

I've sent a PM about surfing at Scarborough, but then again, what about gliding at Upavon?

Thanks for the help everyone! If only the RAO would just let us buy into a package, but we have to take our own instructors and equipment!

Well what instructors and kit do you have access to?
 
How about doing the Lyke Wake Walk, or the classic Hadrian's Wall, cheap and cheerful activities
