Starting the Canyon and breaking the ice.
Over the last few days I have been over on Mull with the 'excite' project pupils from Oban Hi School. A short residential but allot of fun for everyone. Tavool House, http://www.hebrideanpursuits.com/ is a marvellous outdoor centre on the Ardmenach Peninsula above Loch Scridain. It has to be one of the best situated outdoor centres in The UK. Its ideal for residential, parties, special interest groups, wildlife enthusiasts and out door groups.
Day one, saw us Orienteering on 'the Burg', climbing trees and generally chasing around the moors. That night we sent the pupils off on the night line, a muddy and challenging experience in the pitch black and new snow that was falling fast down the sea level.
Day two, saw us canyoning with new snow down to the loch side. A cold experience but everyone really pushed themselves! The burn is only five Min's from the House and offers wonderful yet, easy adventure from hill to sea.
Driving back for the ferry the snow had covered the Hills down to 200m, Ben Buie was covered and the Triple Lochs looked calm hi above Loch Buie.
The next time we meet up with the excite group we will snow boarding!
