School of Hard Knox

An intrepid group of students as part of their activity week elected to explore a little of their beautiful country on foot.

After a preparation day in East Lothian (the students were responsible for organising food and kit), including a little navigation training and planning of their route, the pupils set off north to the Cairngorms

Ruighe-aiteachain bothy in Glen Feshie was one the groups plans to visit and the group camped a reasonable distance away and were introduced to the bothies; how to respect them; how to look after them; yet enjoying the cameraderie of bothy life.

The group also acheived their planned objective of ensuring that they summited a Munro – managing to avoid the snow on the way!

All in a great well planned by S3 studnets from Knox Academy developing resilience, fortitude and planning skills and ready now to have a lifetime of adventures
