The Discovery Award is similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award for young people but is aimed at those over 50 years of age.

There are 3 levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold, and each level has 4 sections:
Service in the Community, Hobby or Interest, Recreational Pursuit and  Discovery Challenge.

The Cults O50 got under way in February 2014. The group meets occasionally to share ideas and get advice from their Gold Award leader but essentially each person works out a personal programme for their chosen leisure activities. Several years later members of the group are still full of enthusiasm. Bronze and Silver awards have been achieved and in September 2017, 3 members were presented with their Gold Award Certificates.

Lovat lodge in Nairn is a popular destination but holidays further afield have been enjoyed, eg the Eden Project in Cornwall and more recently a trip to Chester.

Separate outings are arranged usually on a monthly basis to places of interest. Lunches and afternoon teas are very popular.
