Bennybeg and Kirkton Gorge

The last couple of days I’ve been working with Falkirk Community Trust providing an activity week for The Antonine Primary School Bonnybridge. On Tuesday I was with a group climbing and abseiling at Bennybeg. Today Craig and I were with a different group gorge walking in the Kirkton Gorge near Balquhidder.

Both days have been dry with broken sunshine and the crags were nice and dry.

Yesterday Steve and I were gorge walking with a group from the Falkirk Community Trust summer programme in the Kirkton Gorge, Balquhidder. This excellent gorge has lots of options for falls to climb and some good slides and jumps.

The group were great and dealt with what were the new challenges of gorge walking for most of them extremely well.
