Climbing Wall and Sports Barn at Abernethy Barcaple

From March 2020, our Barcaple centre in Dumfries and Galloway will have a new Sports Barn with two distinct areas – one for indoor football, volleyball, badminton and basketball and the other for climbing.

The Climbing Wall

The climbing wall at Abernethy Barcaple is Dumfries & Galloway's first and only indoor climbing venue!  It will provide for multiple routes of various grades of difficulty, a bouldering area and overhang areas, all with belay and some auto-belay facilities (more than 45 different routes for all abilities, measuring 10m x 8m and 9m high at its maximum). 

Sports Barn

The sports hall (at approx. 20m x 12 m), allows football, basketball and badminton to be played.  There are of course showers and toilets, which is an additional provision for campers on site (rather than needing to use the facilities in the Main building). 


If you would like to contribute to the final funding of this facility, find out more HERE.



How can I book to use the climbing wall?

One of the benefits of this new facility is that we will welcome groups and individuals from the local area.  We will be taking bookings for the Climbing Wall from 1 April 2020.  (Booking conditions HERE). Watch this space for more!
