Deep Blue Scotland

The Secret Life of Seals – watch again on Glow TV  http://glo.li/AfQLsf

This Glow TV event was recorded by students at Barcaldine Primary School on the west coast of Scotland to celebrate the launch of a brand new educational marine science website called Deep Blue Scotland. Pupils describe the life of seals around Scotland’s coasts and will also use the Deep Blue website to track wild seal cubs as they travel around the Scottish coast. Sign in to watch again here.

Discover Explore Activities in the Great Glen

Discover Explore is an initiative of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and the Heritage Alliance and part of a campaign to inspire the UK to discover local, natural, built and historic places. It is designed around a set of outdoor discovery adventures through the Great Glen. Families and young children can take part in exciting missions of exploration, reveal hidden stories and complete badges for activities such as trail finding, historical storytelling and nature discovery. The top five missions so far include:

#1 Discover Culloden’s weapons at Culloden’s battlefield.

#2 Trekking through Glen Nevis

#3 Uncovering Merkinch’s hidden nature

#4 Spot the birds of prey at Abriachan forest

#5 Sail Away at Fort Augustus

There are some excellent activities here which can be enjoyed by families and groups of all ages – get out and about in the spring weather and discover more of our rich cultural heritage, landscape and natural environment!
