Courses are held in a truly gorgeous area where the gold can be found in the small burns tumbling through the heather clad hills. Interestingly, there is a Royal connection as the gold for the Scottish Crown came from this area. There was also a massive gold rush here with over 500 people taking part in the 16th Century. These old timers found plenty, but still missed quite alot!

Gold prospecting has given people so much fun. If you like the sound of all this, you'll find that gold is a link to a wonderful world of outdoor people and adventures - as big or as small as you want to make them!

All equipment and waders provided.
Packed lunch included in price.
Any gold found is yours to keep.

Additional Dates: 15 September 2018, 13 October 2018

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Gold Panning Courses are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
