Wilderness Scotland: Our Week In Pictures

Posted on Aug 15, 2012 by Sarah Morton

What a stunning last fews days we’ve had in the Highlands of Scotland, the weekend was almost as sunny and hot as southern Europe and the start of the week has been pretty nice too – an amazing thunder and lightening storm passed over the Cairngorms yesterday and cleared the way for what looks to be a nice balmy end to the week, and hopefully weekend!

We held our own Olympics closing ceremony at Wilderness HQ on Friday, with everyone hitting the office in Olympics gear – we had Boris Johnson, a boxer, golfer, runner and a couple of martial artists wandering around the office!  With the sun out, there was nothing for it but to hit the lawn at lunch time for a bit of our own Olympics action – discus and egg and spoon racing were on the cards – check out the videos on Facebook later this week!

Highlights this Week:

On Land – our Wilderness Gurus, Karl and Tim, headed into the hills for some Wilderness Walking, they brought Karl’s little daughter Emma along and helped her bag her first munro – Cairn Gorm via Cairn Lochan and Coire an t-Sneachda.

On WaterTim has been spending a decent amount of time in the water, as one of the founding members of the Wilderness Swimmers he’s been taking regular lunch time dips in the local lochs, but having recently signed up for the one mile Loch Ness Monster Swim, he has really upped the ante with his training!  Wishing him all the best, and hoping for a great time as he takes the plunge in the 11 degree centigrade Loch Ness this weekend.  Good Luck Tim!

With our little blip last week, it seems like no time at all since our last update, so we hope we haven’t saturated you with too much fun, sunshine and adventure!  Rest assured normal service has been resumed!

As always – keep in touch with all your antics, pictures and stories – see you again next week!
