Forfar Academy

Yesterday I was working with Ben and Lorenzo up at Glen Nevis with 16 students from Forfar Academy. We split the group into two, half climbing at pinnacle and SW and the other half walking up to the wire bridge via Wave Buttress. After lunch the groups swapped over for each activity. I was with the walkers for both groups. As none of them have been walking beyond pavements, I introduced map work skills, basic navigation, we looked at group management, talked and practiced different walking techniques on different terrains, talked about the flora and about conservation and preservation of the beautiful Steall area. A very enjoyable day for all and not a drop of rain.
