I had a very pleasant day on Saturday with two ladies who wanted to climb Ben Nevis and at a leisurely pace, whilst Ian had 2 groups of 3 peakers! On Sunday we had a couple of families for Indoor Climbing and Canoeing on Loch Morlich. Then this week we are working with Reach4reality and 3 different young people every day doing canoeing, archery and biking.

Wild goats

Another couple of Ben Nevis trips last week and we also had a bimble up our local hill ie Creag Dubh. A herd of wild goats live on this hill and they are quite inquisitive. It is possible to get quite close before they saunter off. Yesterday we went for one of our favourite bike rides which is around Lochan earba to Ardverikie House and back along Loch Laggan (Monarch of the Glen country), always a pleasant trip, more so because of the glorious weather!

Ben Nevis

Had lots of trips to the Ben already this year mainly for Maximum Adventure. Yesterday must have been about the busiest day so far and the weather was superb.

English Tower

Every year about this time, Stuart Baird brings a group of Spanish students to the area for some activities and to continue with their English studies. We have so far done Archery, Indoor Climbing and Canoeing with them, it will be rock climbing next week. We also had a lovely group of children for Indoor Climbing and Rafted Canoeing. They were so quiet that we were able to get quite close to a variety of ducks with their ducklings of all ages who were not at all bothered by us. Yesterday was another trip to Ben Nevis this time for Highpoint Mountain guides, interesting people and good weather too!
