Glen Affric Campout

Our Bushcraft / John Muir Award group finished off their course with an amazing 3 day campout at the Trees for Life bothy in Glen Affric. We planted trees, explored the local area, swam in the river and learned natural cordage. We were lucky enough to have some great weather and not too many midges. Well done to all who took part.

Bushcraft Day

The Support Department took a group of S4/S5 pupils for a day of outdoor activities. We had a visit to the Lifeboat Station at North Kessock followed by some dolphin watching at Chanonry Point.

We then went to Rosemarkie Beach for bushcraft activities. Everyone managed to light a fire using a firesteel.

We had a bit of time to relax by the sea.


Our Departmental mascot managed to toast a marshmallow!



James snapped some photos of our bamboo stick challenge.


Well done to all the participants for making it a great day out.
