Ross high students undertaking the John Muir Award travelled back to Gladshouse reservoir on a second visit. The first time they had been with East Lothian Ranger Service discovering a wild place – they returned to explore the wild place. The students had been hoping that they could explore the reservoir by canoe. However half of the reservoir was found to be covered in very thick ice. Our exploring of the reservoir took on a different approach.
After trying to paddle our canoes we took to a spot of dragging then finally attempted to sail our canoes across the water. A great days exploring had by all. An alternative ‘liquid’ reservoir day is being arranged for the students to continue their exploration.
