Reach for the Skye – OLS Summer Expedition 2016


The challenge …. following on from last year’s popular Oat Route Expedition this year we are planning an expedition based around the The Skye Trail. This is a challenging 8 day walk up the length of the Island of Skye. It will involve lots of rough off-path walking,  teetering along cliff-top paths and passing through the heart of the Skye Cuillin mountains.  You will visit some of the remotest areas of the island.  The reward – stunning scenery, new skills learnt and a great sense of achievement.

Details … aiming for 15th – 24th June – exact dates TBD, but definitely will be after exams.   We hope to offer this for between £200 and £300 per person.  10 days in total (8 days walking), 9 nights, traveling up and down by train and bus.   Accommodation will be a mixture of camping and hostels.  Final cost dependent on group size and staffing – min of 6, max 12.

Open to … any motivated and committed pupils currently in 4th , 5th or 6th year from across the ELC secondary schools who are up for a challenge.  In terms of effort and required fitness … think of DofE Gold Exped – just twice fun, twice the effort with tougher walking. No problem.
