Dinner (pizza/chicken enchiladas and wedges with salad) eaten and the children are busy packing their bags and dressing for the disco at 7:30pm.

Bacon rolls for breakfast then out for morning activities: gorge walking, mountain biking, skiing and abseiling.  Back in for lunch and ready for round 2: kayaking, more mountain biking and skiing.  It's raining but still so beautiful, we spotted the first lot of snow on the Cairngorms on our bike ride then sheltered in a wooden bothy and found a page in the visitor's book signed by last year's P7s and teacher who were there on 31/10/12!  We added a page for 2013!

Off to take some more photos!

That's everyone into their beds after some fantastic entertainment at the talent show, lights are out, torches are turned off and it's all quiet (well almost)!

Fantastic cycling today!

Some more photos from today.  Indoor rock climbing and snowboarding.

A few photos we found from yesterday's hill amazing walk up Creag nan gall.

Wow great improvement in the dorm inspection results:

And they're still eating!  Banana bread and juice before bed with a little 1D.

Everyone is busy writing their diaries after a delicious dinner of chicken curry and naan bread or baked potato and thinking about what to work on tomorrow.  Some ideas are: keep trying my hardest because I'm quite physically tired after the long hill walk, challenge myself more, have confidence in myself, remember to wrap up warm.

Tonight's activity is spooky stories and songs around the camp fire with toasted marshmallows.  Photos to follow!
More climbing from this afternoon!

A fantastic afternoon abseiling and then rock climbing as the group were so speedy!

Lunch and hot chocolates are currently being consumed.  Afternoon activities are: orienteering and abseiling then after dinner there is singing and toasting marshmallows around the camp fire to look forward to.
Morning activities today were:

3 groups doing gorge walking,
1 group hill walking for a half day
and 1 group rock climbing and bouldering.

Here are a few photos from the gorge!

According to BM it was "freezing, cold fun!"  More photos to follow!
