Each year a group of students from Goerge Watson’s college in Edinburgh travel up to Harris for two weeks to enjoy and learn about our unique environment and culture. This year 13 children came up for the two week residential. The group were all working towards the John Muir Award and spent a day with the North Harris Ranger planting trees and exploring the rugged North Harris hills. Despite gale force winds the morning was spent planting 120 native trees around the Bogha glass carpark. It is hoped that future groups from George Watsons will be able to see the progress from this years conservation effort.
In the afternoon the group walked to the foot of Sron Ulldal to inspect the awsome overhang. On the way back a few group members were amost blown away by the un-seasonal gales!
