George Heriot's School pupils come Scrambling in Glencoe.

The last few days Hebridean Pursuits have been hosting George Heriot's School's first scrambling course. We did the very fine Lagangarbh Buttress and The Zig-Zags and summited Stob Coire nan Lochan 1115 m. The weather was challenging but the young people and their staff just lapped up the experiences. Thanks to instructors Alan Halewood and Adrian Henderson for their enthusiasm and hard work and to the teaching staff Ed and Jenny for making it all happen. It is refreshing that young people are activity encouraged to do adventurous adventures. These experiences remain for life and I am sure there will be some budding mountaineers in the team this weekend.    

The Zig-Zags. 

Three is not a crowd.

Feeling the exposure.

Gearing up. Happy Scramblers.

The team. 

Adrian Henderson where he is most happy!
