On the 18th April 2015 SYHA Hostelling Scotland hosted its inaugural SYHActive Day, a celebration of the great outdoors at Rowardennan Lodge Youth Hostel on the shores of Loch Lomond at the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

The day included a sponsored duathlon, organised with Sport Ecosse Events, and a free outdoor showcase where visitors could get an insight into modern hostelling, learn more about the national park and enjoy a range of activities provided by our partner organisations, including Trossachs and Loch Lomond National Park, Duke of Edinburgh, Scouts, Boots N Paddles, Can You Experience and Scotland Outdoors.

Well done and thank you to everyone who took part in the SYHActive Outdoor Challenge consisting of a 10 mile walk/run round the shoulder of Ben Lomond, followed by a 34 mile cycle starting at the changeover point at Inversnaid. Individuals and teams raised funds to support SYHA's youth activity programmes for disadvantaged young people. You can still make a donation to support our youth activity programmes here.
