On the 20th and 21st of September pupils in S5/6 taking National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher Geography had the chance to visit the Isle of Skye to carry out fieldwork. This was a great opportunity for them to see at first-hand many of the spectacular environments studied in class. In addition, pupils were able to gather fieldwork data vital to their Added Value Units.
Despite variable weather and ever present midgies, it was an immensely enjoyable trip and the pupils involved were a credit to the school and the department. It is hoped that this trip will run again next year.
