On Wednesday 24 October thirteen of the Lochgilphead High S2 pupils that will be attending Outward Bound took up the opportunity to walk from the school to Bellanoch Bridge (on the Crinan Canal) and back. The walk which was a total of 11.5 miles (18.6 km) was arranged so that the pupils could raise funds towards their trip via sponsorship.
The walk was challenging and lasted from 9.30am until 3.15pm with stops at Cairnbaan for refreshments and Bellanoch Bridge for lunch.
On the return journey they came across a sign telling them (‘LHS Outward Bound’) that they were almost finished! It is thought that this was done by one of the pupils’ fathers who works nearby and was a welcome surprise as it lifted their spirits for the final stretch of the canal bank.
The pupils along with a small number of others who didn’t make the walk will be going to Outward Bound at Loch Eil, near Fort William in February for five days on an Adventure & Challenge Course. Whilst there they will also complete The John Muir Discovery award during their time in the great outdoors doing lots of challenging & fun activities.
Pictured below are the group at Bellanoch Bridge (proof they made it!) and the sign that mysteriously appeared on the fence post on their return journey.
A massive thanks to Miss Simpson for stepping in at short notice to assist with supervision of the group.
