Bit of a techy day today with Steve and Dan from Outfit Moray. We visited Quarril woods just outside Elgin with a view to setting up a new Tyrolean venue for groups. The old quarries make good venues with easy tree anchors, take off and landing spots. The activity is designed as a team building exercise where the group follows photo diagrams to set the whole thing up. We then added a postmans walk (slackline)which could be an additional challenge. The day finished with a review of the working guidelines/procedures and the risk assessments.

Inaccessible Pinnacle, Skye

Sunday was one of those days you wait years for. The Cuillin, blue sky, warm, no wind and no midges, awesome!

A great day to tick off one of your last Munros for Jim, Stevie, Hugh and John from Stirling Walking Club. Probably the hardest Munro which involves some easy but exposed climbing/scrambling.

Cheers to the guys for a great day.
