On Saturday Ruairidh MacKenzie took a group of 6 kids & 6 adult belayers (all who have climbed outdoors with him before) to the Old Man Of Stoer, the trip had been an idea of Ruairidh's for a couple of years.
We all arrived on Friday night and camped at the lighthouse leaving at 10.30 on Saturday morning for the hour walk to The Old Man of Stoer.
If we had listened to the weather forecast the trip would not have gone ahead but Ruairidh assured us that all would be fine and sure enough we could not have had better weather.
low tide was at 12:10 and all the kids were geared up and abseiling down to the ledge to wait for the other 7 climbers already on The Old Man to have their climb before they crossed on a tyrolean.
All 6 kids made it look easy and were all up standing on the top for a group photo before the long abseil back down, scramble back up the cliff and back to the tents for much earned food and celebrations!!
