Day One… Monday 3rd March

Primary 7 are all safe, sound and very well fed!
We had a great journey across, stopping off at Luss, for lunch, at 11:30am and arriving at Benmore around 12:50pm. The first activity which everyone took part in was bed making… some interesting strategies when trying to insert duvets into covers and put sheets on matresses, however, everyone managed in time for our first outdoor adventures.

Group One
“We were split into 2 groups and had a tour of the centre. Then we were given water-proofs and a helmet. We were told to meet at the mini-bus. Scott, our instructor, took us ‘slab climbing’ which was very slippery but great fun. Then we went back in the bus and did some more ‘bouldering’ and we also went through a waterfall. It was quite scary but everyone managed to do it. We came back to the centre and hung our clothes in the drying room. Then we had juice and cake”

Group Two
“We met our instructor, Iona and she told us some information about our stay. Then we went to collect our water-proofs. We also got some wellies. We were told to get ready and meet her at the front door. We then went exploring in the Benmore gardens where we had our first taste of a gorge walk”

Tonight’s dinner consisted of home-made pizza, potato wedges and salad, followed by yoghurt and fruit-keeping the energy levels up for a full day of Gorge walking, climbing and abseiling tomorrow.

We’re off on a night-walk in 15 minutes so please check the blog tomorrow for more updates and pictures (hopefully).

    Hi everyone. It’s great to read you’ve arrived and started to go adventuring already. Morven says to steal Scott’s hat (if he still has it), but keep that secret, ok?
    Have loads of big, wet fun! Alan says the school is very quiet with out the p7s 🙂
