Big thanks to all the staff at Funworld for all your help in organising this trip and on the night ,

 Everest Challengers Almost There

05.01 Everest 105.01 - Everest 2This month’s Everest Challenge took Scouts and Explorers from the District to the Arrochar Alps last weekend where they climbed hills on both days, camping wild at Butterbridge in between.

Beinn an Lochain gave views over Inveraray, Butterbridge and the Rest and Be Thankful on Saturday, and Ben Donich gave views over Lochgoilhead on Sunday. The first walkers should hopefully break the 13,000ft barrier next time and with that they’ll gain their Eiger neckies.

 Kilmacolm Cubs Enjoy A Nature Hike

05.01 - Everest 205.01 - 42nd 2Despite worries over bad weather the sun shine throughout the hike as the youngsters took the opportunity to spot and write down the flora and fauna they encountered on the walk.

Once at the top of the Cairn near Langbank, Akela Jen Gray took the opportunity to invest new leader  Esther Brombley and new Cub Corey Macleod with their neckties.

There was just time for a bite to eat before they all headed back to the Scout Hall.

Thanks to all the parent helpers who came along and made the day such a success.
