Expedition Success


Our DofE pupils had a great few days away completing their expeditions, marking a welcomed return to more normality after such a difficult year with Covid-19.

The pupils enjoyed practice sessions in the Loch Laggan area before undertaking their Final Expedition in and around Fort William.

Duke of Edinburgh Co-ordinator Mr Macleod said: “What a privilege it was to finally be back with DofE groups on expedition It was fabulous to see the teams working so well together as they journeyed through the Highlands. For the Practice Expedition they were based in the beautiful Loch Laggan area – those of you old enough might remember this was where the TV series Monarch of Glen was filmed and the teams camped in view of Glen Bogle Castle.

“For the Final Expedition they started in Fort William and either walked the Great Glen or paddled the Caledonian Canal to Fort Augustus. The weather was gorgeous and we are one of the very few people this year to have had a week in the sun.

“Well done to everyone in S4 Silver A for passing their expedition section and we are looking forward to a further 4 weeks as the rest of S4,5 & 6 get out.”
