River Deep, Mountain High

More appropriate title would be Stream Shallow, Valley Steep.

We had the pleasure of working with a select group of students from Ross High. They are currently undertaking their John Muir Award – Discovery Level. The programme is running in conjunction with East Lothian Ranger Service. This morning  was designed to enable the pupils to get up close and personal with a steep sided valley and appreciate the erosive froces at work throughout the valley. We chose to go to Bilsdean so that we could have a fire on the beach for hot drinks for our midmorning break.

The pupils have some more fantastic sessions with the Ranger service before returning to the Outdoor Education service to explore a wild place by canoe.

  1. This made me smile! I remember at least two of them from my teaching days at Tranent – they are all grown up!
