Burravoe Primary School

Going for a walk


Today we went on a long walk to video some of Burravoe. It was really windy so we got all our hats and things on and decided what to video and speak about them. We first walked to the Kirk to film some facts about it. James and Charlotte spoke and Brydon filmed the bit about the kirk. It is a Scottish Episcopalian Kirk. We walked up the Neepaback road and we stopped and filmed Ryan’s kye, its not too far from the school. You can usually smell them in the summer! Mia and Kerry spoke and Kay filmed. We walked a bit further and filmed some hens. All of them were camera shy. They were in a park at the bottom of a hill, above them were some old croft houses and planticrubs. Lucy and Honor spoke and James filmed. We battled the wind to half way down the road and filmed a quick bit about the crofts and continued to battle our way to the Marina. We stopped and filmed the NEW public toilets. Brydon and Bradley spoke and Kay filmed. The toilets are important to Burravoe so tourists and fishermen can use toilets and showers and the caravans and camper vans can have electricity. We stomped along a track to a white gate that wouldn’t open! We took ages to open it but we sent 3 big ones over and as Kay was coming over Jennifer opened it. We took a video of the old pier and the noost  and James spoke. Then Miss Breyley took a video of the cannon and some of the horrible weather! We went up the stairs and videoed our cook’s house. We carried on up the road and took a video of Davie’s chickens and lobster creels. We got to the top of the hill and took a panorama of most of Burravoe then we went to the school for piece.


  1. It sounds really interesting where you live. It also sounds like you have some fantastic wildlife. Is it always as windy?
    I go camping a lot with my family so it is worth knowing that there are some facilities that people can use if they decide to come for a visit or a holiday.

    I think it sounds as though some of you could be film directors when you are older. Would any of you like this job?

  2. A great description of the walk and the conditions! I’ve done a cut and paste of this to put in the Longhaugh/Burravoe wiki with the video clips.
