About Us


Our Origins

On the 3rd of December 1967, the vision given to Captain Stephen Anderson and 11 others became a reality in the opening of the Compass Ski Club. All of this took place after Captain Stephen had a life-changing experience on the mountains, while working as a shepherd. Through Captain Steven’s love of nature, God showed him the power He had to change lives. This encounter with God led him to start Compass Ski Club as an outreach for skiers going up to the slopes at Glenshee. The work has grown over the years into Compass Christian Centre, based at Glenshee Lodge. Even today the centre still provides an environment where people of all ages can get out into nature and experience God’s creation whilst in fellowship with each other.

What are we doing now?

Compass has been providing a warm welcome to schools, families, and groups of all ages, for more than 50 years. We are confident that your stay with us will be an unforgettable one. The Centre is situated in the Cairngorm National Park, in the midst of rolling hills, clear lochs, and rugged mountains. We have expanded our activities in the last 50 years to include archery, kayaking, indoor climbing room, high ropes and many more. Compass Christian Centre provides an ideal location for an outdoor adventure. Come and see for yourself why so many of our guests return year after year.As well as all of our on-site activities, God has opened up many opportunities to serve Him in different ways.
