Sunny seaside bouldering

At the weekend I spent 2 days at Glenmore Lodge attending the induction for Mountain Training UK's new Lowland Leader Award (I'm now a provider) and the Hill and Mountain Skills Scheme (I'm a tutor). Interesting getting my head around 2 new and very different schemes.
Then I went west for a few days (with no phone signal or wifi- hope you are all impressed) with the family. We stayed in a ger, paddled on the beach, played in the rocks, spotted seals, explored the woods , enjoyed the sun and ate good food. I was even good enough to be sent out for a couple of hours bouldering amongst the endless pillow lavas of Ardnamurchan where the friction is so good you'ld have to throw yourself off to fall!
