There are still places available for the Cleasachd air a’ Bhlàr a-Muigh/Outdoor Activities sessions this week – starting from tomorrow (Thursday August 8th)  - and next week.

These sessions are aimed at improving the confidence of Gaelic Medium pupils who haven’t had a chance to use Gaelic at home and provide a fun activity for those who have.

The use of Gaelic will be adjusted to the skills of those involved.

If your child would like to participate, please get in touch: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 01851 822 850.

Organisers says: “Is your child a little mountain goat, or simply keen on trying something new?

“Our indoor rock climbing and bouldering sessions are a great way to develop their climbing skills. Even better, this can be done when the weather isn’t ideal for an outdoor adventure!”

Events take place in Ionad Spòrs Lèodhais and also in outside venues like the Castle Grounds.

“These sessions will give participants the chance to explore the woods as well as introducing them to some basic bushcraft skills.

“Children will learn to identify the things they find, gain navigation skills, play games and build dens.

“These sessions are aimed at children of lower primary age.”

Other activities include family walks: “Come for a wander around the Castle Grounds with our Gaelic-speaking instructors, to learn a little of the language in an informal setting.

“These sessions are suitable for parents with children in Gaelic-medium education, or visitors who are interested in learning more about the language and culture of the islands.

“Family Walks are aimed at families rather than unaccompanied children.

“Our afternoon sessions welcome young people who would like to attend on their own.”
