BENMORE 2017/2018


Cloudy but warm today but that’s brought out the midgies!  Another fun packed day full of activities.  The children have continued to throw themselves in with lots of enthusiasm and stretched themselves and many have overcome lots of fears.  Job done!  Lots more photos to share.

Day 4 – Gorge Walking on PhotoPeach

I have also added some videos of the children being daring and cooling off half way through our bike ride today. Braver souls than I.

Lots more great photos from Mr Goodbourn’s activities today which were a Forest Walk and Rock Pooling & Beach Combing. Enjoy!


Another beautiful and fun packed day at Benmore. The weather has been glorious again but all the children have bee
n very sensible with the sun cream. The midgies have been out in force so we do have a few bites but nobody is letting that put them off their activities. Today we have been orienteering, kayaking, canoeing, gorge walking, beach walking and more. We have had dinner and are now getting ready for our evening activity. Again, here are a few of the highlights of our day.

We were also lucky today to see a Common Lizard which was caught by our very own Nature Detective Mrs Muir.

The weather has been great again. A little cooler than yesterday but still a very beautiful day. We have had a full day of activities including mountain biking, kayaking, forest walking, gorge walks, high ropes and orienteering. Everybody is in good spirits and throwing themselves into the different activities. Here are a few of today’s photos for your enjoyment. I have also added a link to Mr Goodbourn’s YouTube channel where you can see a number of videos of the group that he was with today.

Day 2 – Orienteering on PhotoPeach

Just a quick line to let you know that we have arrived safely at Benmore and have already been out in our groups getting to know the grounds of Benmore.  Everybody has made their beds!  The children are just doing a little unpacking and then it is time for cake and juice before a little free time before dinner.  More to follow…..

Day one has been a great success and the children have now retired to bed! After a dinner of fish and chips, jelly and ice cream we visited Loch Awe for a cooling dip. First set of clothes and shoes now in the drying room. Up early tomorrow for a full programme of activities, lots more photos to follow. Make sure you leave us a comment.
