Wet conditions on Mull, but still fun!

Words of wisdom!
Screams of ......................?
Songs of Balamory.
Stormy seas!
The girls group from Dundee are making the most of the continuing wet weather. The general theme has been mud and water based adventures. Their highlight so far has been the Balamory mini bus and mine was meeting Yoda. The open fire and snuggling up in front of it has been a popular activty also.
Even in these testing conditions Mull offers interesting and challeneging adventures. The Force is strong for The Roses Project.

BRAWA Coasteering skills training course.

This weekend HPL organised a Coasteering Skills Course this weekend based at The Ancrum Outdoor Centre in Dundee. The weekend was run for Association of Mountaineering Instructors who were keen to have an in depth look at this exciting and challenging adventure sport.
We coasteered on the fabulous Arbroath sea cliffs, they offer some very fine exploration in caves, jumps and long swims. The weekend was progressive and great fun with the instructors learning allot about journeying in the marine environment.
Hebridean Pursuits Ltd are offering another BRAWA Coasteering course based in Oban on December 1 and 2nd 2011. Calls us on 01631710317 for more information.
