We have had a great first day! On arrival at the Arran Outdoor Education Centre we were introduced to the staff and became familiar with the building and sorted out our kit. We then had lunch before heading off to Brodick Castle to do some orienteering.
After dinner we had some time in the classroom learning about John Muir before heading out for a twilight coastal walk, inspired by his words on nature. We saw a seal rest on the slipway as we walked far enough along to see the light of the lighthouse on Holy Isle.
We finished off our day with toast for supper and a story about John Muir and then to bed.
