Bennybeg and Creag na h-Eighe

The last two days I’ve been working for Falkirk Community Trust. Yesterday David, Mike, Anthony and I were at Bennybeg with a school group rock climbing, abseiling and doing bushcraft.

Today Ken, Bex and I had a great day at Creag na h-Eighe looking at leading skills, building belays and climbing some of the classics of the crag. We had a couple of light showers, but nothing that stopped us climbing and the crag dried quickly in the light wind and sunshine.

Robin and I were out climbing and abseiling with another two great groups from Antonine Primary School for Falkirk Community Trust Outdoors today. We visited Bennybeg, a bolted quartz-dolerite crag between Muthill and Crieff.

It was very sunny at the crag, which was mostly dry although there is still some seepage on a few of the routes.
