Family Canoe Safari on Loch Lomond

Showers and sunny intervals were the order of the last Monday when the ‘Gould consortium’ took to the Loch on their safari.

The breeze was a little challenging, but the group were strong enough to get out to Inchtavannach to explore the island. Ascending the hill ‘Tom-na-Clag’ was a little awkward with the summer undergrowth, but the group were fortified with wild fruits and fresh water found on the way.

Well done all. You handled the boats well in tricky conditions and made a great adventure of the day.

Cultural and Heritage visit estonia

One of our Outdoor Leaders was fortunate to be selected to join five other participants from across the tourism industry and based in Scotland. Cliff’s focus was on the ancient traditions and heritage and the experiences which had less structure and almost perceived as informal. He will do his best to try and emulate such experience here in Scotland which will involve local personalities

and aim to engage and interest others in Scottish heritage.
