Loch Insh Trip – Day 1

Wow! What a busy day.

We were all up at 6 for breakfast on the boat. The bairns all did ever so well again, being polite and well behaved. They all left their cabins ship shape!

We left Aberdeen at 7.30. A lot of excited chatter from all the bairns on the bus. We stopped at Tesco in Huntley for a snack and then set off for Landmark.

We arrived at 11am. The bairns really enjoyed exploring the park and challenged themselves to try the activities.  They were all very independent and responsible.  A lot of supporting and encouraging each other.

We set off for Loch Insh and arrived at 4pm.  We had dinner at 4.30 and then had a short while to unpack before having our briefing talk.

The first activity was called ‘Wayfind’ and it was exactly that. Teams of 4 used map reading skills to solve clues. This all helped the bairns find their way around the site.

Supper and phone time followed at 9. Lots of the bairns were asking to go to bed! They have had a very busy day and were all tired! No wonder.

They are all asleep now and I’m looking forward to our first full day in Loch Insh. It is absolutely beautiful here. I’m sure we will have an excellent day tomorrow. I only ask for a little more wind to blow the midges away!
