Duke of Edinburgh


Looking for a Gold DofE Residential?


If you are aged between 16 -25 and looking to complete your Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award then Hostelling Scotland have a great opportunity for you!


Minnigaff Youth Hostel, Newton Stewart, DG8 6PL 


2pm Monday 1st to 1pm Friday 5th July 2018

Meet other young people and volunteer together to help us make over our Minnigaff Youth Hostel.

You will work together as a group to create new nature trails, information displays and children's’ areas, design and paint an area inside the hostel and makeover the grounds.

You’ll gain new skills, learn about Hostelling and have the chance to explore this unique part of Scotland.

You will be provided with shared accommodation in the hostel and will plan and cook your meals as a group (you will be supported by Hostelling Scotland staff with both planning and doing this!)

You need to get yourself to Newton Stewart (we can provide lifts from the bus stop in Newton Stewart to the hostel) and you need to contribute £40 for food costs for the week. There are no other costs.

Hostelling Scotland is a Residential Approved Activity Provider for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award To apply please complete the application form on our website and email to volunteers@hostellingscotland.org.uk
