George Heriot's School annual scrambling weekend in Glencoe.

Each year we work with George Heriot's School on a variety of outdoor education adventure experiences.

Winter walking courses, winter mountaineering, scrambling and a coasteering weekend are all on the menu.

 This weekend 12 pupils and 3 staff from George Heriot's School returned to Glencoe on there annual scrambling weekend.

I headed up onto Buachaille Etive Mor and guided Curved Ridge on Saturday and we did Dinner Time Buttress on Sunday.

The other three teams with our mountaineering instructors ascended North Face Route, Curved Ridge and the zigzags.

The weather was fabulous and the vistas across Rannoch Moor were just stunning.  

What an experience for the 14 year olds. We look forward to seeing them again on other weekends. And hopefully we have a few converts to Scottish mountaineering in the making.
