The autumn season has turned to winter up here in Scotland. With fresh snow on the ground our thoughts turn to winter work and adventures.
We are looking forward to a very busy winter of bookings in the mountains and although spring and summer 2017 is a way off we are planing our residential courses out at Tavool House Outdoor Centre on Mull already.
The last few weeks again have been very varied. We have been wrapping up the summer season, stock taking kit, closing the centre down and visiting our customers to review their experiences and courses this season. I am glad to say all are returning if funding can be secured. The Roses Project continues to offer disadvantaged young people a chance to experience outdoor education in a unique environment, we continue to develop our service and after 28 years we still want to learn and improve our delivery and course programs.
The last month has seen HPL support and assess a gold Duke of Edinburgh qualifier expedition in the Lake District, we hosted team training days for local companies, George Heriots School returned for their annual adventure weekend and we ran a BRAWA Coasteering Course, as well as getting out in the new snow or some hill walking.
We will be posting blog posts of winter conditions in the hills and climbing conditions on a regular basis. We hope you have a great winter season in the mountains or at sea and please take care.
