More canoeing

Yesterday we were out with a lovely group consisting of a family of 4 and 2 brothers on the Spey from Kingussie to Loch Insh. The weather was fine and we all enjoyed a relaxed, friendly paddle, chatting and watching out for wildlife.

Catch up

Since the 3 Peaks we have been doing a variety of activities with a variety of groups including walking with a Swedish group, indoor climbing with a great bunch of Caithness Army Cadets, fun activities for Alltnacriche, and then yesterday Ian was guiding on Ben Nevis for Maximum Adventure whilst I took a group canoeing from Loch Insh to Aviemore to celebrate one of the girls 21st birthday. This was fun and the sun shone!

3 Peaks

It has been a busy couple of weeks one way or another, working with the Falcon Froup, No limits etc. This last weekend we were working for Maximum Adventure on a 3 Peaks challenge for groups from various local radio stations all raising money for 'Cash for Kids'. The weather was not as kind as it could have been and the majority of these folk were not outdoor people but they coped brilliantly and were still smiling at the end. Snowdon was the worst for most as the vicious gusts were pushing them over at times but their tenacity got them there.
