Biking and Hillwalking with local children

 Another two brilliant days for us with some of our local kids. On Monday we were biking and generally having fun in Glenmore Forest. Then yesterday we climbed the Corbett, Geal Charn Mor. We have a few young ones who are really loving the hillwalking and we are especially pleased that we had a very fit 5 year old join us this time. All the other kids loved having him with us as he was lots of fun and very chatty. They are now asking for bigger things, Cairngorm is on their check list!

Canoeing with Crossreach

 We always look forward to canoeing with Crossreach once a year. The carers alwasy go the extra mile for their service users and this year was no exception. this is the first time that the service users had been out to play since before lockdown and rafted canoeing was the perfect activity for them. As we were a bit concerned about the algae on Loch Morlich we elected for a trip on Loch Insh. The weather was perfect, the trip around the lock and up the river was much enjoyed especially the close encounter with the cows and calves.

Carn a'Chuilinn

 We love picking out different routes to hills and this was a great one. Not having been on this hill for at least 20 years it was time we revisited it. We walked up the Corrieyairack track from Melgarve to it's highpoint then descended by Coire na Ceire to the river Tarff, crossed this and took to the steep grassy slopes to point 768 and on to Carn a'Chuillin. Lots of little lochans and pathless terrain which we always enjoy. Back to the river and up the steep grassy slopes of Min Choire to a broad col and then lovely easy walking over Corrieyairack hill and back down the track. A really enjoyable day!
