Heatwaves, fires, gales, now the snow is back! It's down to about 600m on Cruachan though I suspect it won't last the day.

I spent last night visiting some of the gorges in the area that are used increasingly by local outdoor centres to take groups up for a mix of walking, climbing swimming and jumping in. There is going to be an accident at some point and they can be very complex to get people out of, more difficult than most mountain situations, so it is good to have an idea of easy access points in advance.

Tonight we are taking the local school adventure group Coasteering at Ganavan. Similar to gorge walking but by the sea, climb up the rocks, along them and jump off into the water from high or low. No idea why kids love it......

Personally I recommend coasteering over gorge walking, the water is much warmer, particularly after about start of June.
