Winter Mountain Skills Course in Glencoe. Saturday 17th.

Thanks to Dan Goodwin for sending me these photos of our course yesterday in Glencoe. Dan  was working for us with  a Father and son team, The Clarkes. They came along after mum, Mrs Clarke had bought them a Christmas present voucher to spend a day with us looking at winter walking skills.  Dan had a great day in warming conditions ascending to 1108m and the fine Munro of Meall a Bhuiridh. As the team ascended they concentrated on the essentials of winter walking and mountain going in the winter.  The happy team said they had really enjoyed themselves, learnt alot and felt more confident on the winter hills. We still have courses running through to April so more details can be found on Thanks to Dan for his knowledgeable and experienced instruction yesterday. A bright morning in Oban. A good forecast is promised over the next few days. We have 8 days of climbing and winter skills course coming up, blogging maybe intermitent due to lack of connection. Back soon!
