🌲 Exciting Weekend in Aviemore! 🏞️

What a fantastic weekend it was for our dedicated cadets as they embarked on a journey of exploration and adventure in the picturesque Aviemore area! Completing a DofE Silver Expedition and a Gold Practice, these young adventurers showcased their resilience, teamwork, and love for the outdoors.

Amidst the breathtaking landscapes of the Highlands, the cadets had the privilege of visiting one of the most cherished spots in the region – An Lochan Uaine, also known as the Green Loch. This hidden gem, nestled in the heart of nature, holds a special place in the hearts of many, and it's easy to see why!

The DofE Silver Expedition and Gold Practice not only tested their navigational skills and ability to adapt to different situations but also forged bonds that will last a lifetime. As they trekked through the rugged terrain, they learned the importance of teamwork, communication, and perseverance.

Here's to more adventures, more challenges, and more opportunities to explore the beauty of our world!
