Most of this week I’ve been working on the Falkirk Community Trust Summer Programme. This programme gives an excellent opportunity for kids to try all sorts of outdoor activities, develop lots of skills and get out and about in the Scottish countryside.
The highlight of the week for me was a sunny day spent scrambling, rock climbing and abseiling at The Hawkcraig near Aberdour. The tide was high during the morning and we spent the early part of the day scrambling and exploring the East end of the crags near the old lighthouse. This is an area normally ignored by rock climbers, but was ideal for the size and age of the group.
