PL’s Fairy Castle Adventure

Yesterdays intrepid group of girls from Preston Lodge ventured out into the snow Lammermuirs to explore Fairy Castle. We had intended to drive up through Elmscleuch and walk over Packman’s Grave on Moneynut Edge. Unfortuneatly though the road up past the farm is sheet ice …. no-way in the mini-bus!

In the end we parked at Aikengall Farm and walked up the new turbine-access road, and dropped down into the Dunglas Deans. Most of the snow is now gone, and it was all pretty wet and boggy on the fields, and sheet ice on the tracks.

After a sheltered lunch in the teep-pee we walked up onto the top of Moneynut Edge for full veiw of all of the turbined before returning back to Aikengall.

While some of these pupils have done some Outdoor Activities before for many it was something new and quite a challenge. By the end of the day they all agree that they had enjoyed it, and had also learned about renewable energy in East Lothian. Thanks to Mr Bell and Mr Lynas for assisting.
