The P7 pupils recently enjoyed an action-packed week at Loch Insh Watersports in the Scottish Highlands. The trip began early on a Monday morning with everyone meeting at school at 6am! Aboard the coach, everyone was in good spirits as they looked forward to a busy week ahead. After the ferry crossing, we travelled through Scotland enjoying some stunning scenery along the way. We even managed to eat our packed lunches outdoors.
We arrived at Loch Insh in the afternoon, found our dorms, unpacked, had tea and then enjoyed an evening of orienteering. This was a great way to find our way around the Loch Insh site - once we figured our how to read the map!
The rest of the week was full of fun and laughter. The five different activity groups - lions, tigers, pumas, leopards and jaguars - all took part in a range of activities:- kayaking, canoeing, wind-surfing, raft-building, sailing, orienteering, mountain-biking, skiing, archery problem-solving and a trip on the Loch Insh tour boat. We experienced all kinds of weather, even some snow!
Overall the trip was a fantastic experience and we were sad to leave Loch Insh when it was time to go home. Thanks to the instructors who made all the activities such good fun.
