Youth Inclusive

Today we did Orienteering and Archery with Drew, Brian, Lorraine and a group of young people. This is the second time we have worked with them and it was another great day. They are always keen and enthusiastic to get on and do things. We are looking forward to our next day together when we are hoping to go Weaselling and Abseiling.

Sgairneach Mhor

On Wednesday we bimbled into Coire Ardair of Creag Meagaidh, nicely wintry looking. Yesterday we went to Sgairneach Mhor and the weather was sparkling. Good firm ground and snow conditions superb for walking.

Active kids

Yesterday we used the Indoor Wall at Glenmore Lodge all day for Abseiling and Climbing with some of our 'Active Kids'. They keep us on our toes and it is always fun with these youngsters.

Creag Beag

Snow conditions were really lovely to walk in yesterday and we just paid a visit to one of our close low hills.

New Year in a tent

On Friday we set off from Moy Bridge and walked up to the bealaich at 750m between Beinn a'Chlachair and Geal Charn. It was very misty, very windy and very drizzly. Eventually found a suitable campsite and got sorted. It snowed during the night and became so cold that everything froze solid including the boots. What a lovely view in the morning though, straight down to Loch a' Bhealaich Leamhain, it was a real Winter Wonderland. Took a while to get packed as things were stuck together with ice but eventually packed up and set off across the col between Geal Charn and Creag Pitridh. Descended Coire a Mhaigh down to Lochan an Earba and back to van. A grand way to spend New Year!
