Outdoor Adventure Academy 2015 / 2016 and West Highland College Adventure Experiences.

Over the last week we have been back in the water coaching and guiding on Mull and in Oban.

We introduced students from The Certificate of Outdoor Learning Course from West Highland College to coasteering on a very exciting and quality swell day at Seil Island.

We are proud to relaunched the Outdoor Adventure Academy in partnership with Coastal Communities Fund Apprentices from Strive Adventure and youth. We are presently at Tavool House on the first three days of their 13 day training programme. This program will cover coasteering, climbing / scrambling, hill walking skills, winter mountaineering and canyoning sessions between now and May 2016.

A busy couple of weeks on Mull, in the Highlands and inside today.

 Here at Hebridean Pursuits we have had a really busy working week or so with a variety of clients and on different projects. We ran a Duke of Edinburgh's Award Gold qualifying expedition for a school from Kent. Hosted another Roses Project Residential out  at Tavool House on  Mull and we have started back instructing the students from West Highland College on their hill walking module. Today was an inside day at Glasgow Climbing Centre teaching leading. So all in all  rather varied period. But as they say, variety is the spice of life!
