Last night after the tuck shop we did a night activity. We had to do a sort of scavenger hunt. We went in groups of 5. I was with Brigid, Ailsa, Morven, Jemma and me. Me and Brigid managed to get a bit lost. We had a list of things to find. Our groups decided to split up to count the trees in the redwood avenue. The path seemed to go for ever in the dark, and me and Brigid were getting very scared. At last we found our way back.
This morning we all woke up after a good night’s sleep. For breakfast we had sausages, baked beans and toast. It was very yum. My first activity was caving. I was a bit scared but it was fine. First we had to climb up a small hill and find the cave. It was a small cave but it was bigger than the second cave. We climbed in then got lowered down on a rope. We walked through the cave for about 15 minutes then found daylight! The second cave was called Diddy Pit because it was a small pit that had formed a cave by landslide. We had to go through a tiny slide and it was wet and rocky! That cave was very small.
When we got back it was lunch, lentil soup and a roll. After that it was gorge walk.
The gorge walk was sooooooooooooooooo wet. I slipped TWICE!! It was very slippery. Then when we were coming down I fell over AGAIN! I was wet, cold, bruised and COLD. FREEZING!
For tea it was roast beef, potato, Yorkshire puddings and carrots. Then it was diaries.
Today Stuart woke me up AGAIN singing Fireflies. For breakfast we had sausage and beans. Man, I feel like a king or something here! For our first activity it was caving. It was SOOOO FUN! The first cave had a small hole as the entrance and then Joe (our instructor) lowered us down a hole. It was quite scary, but it was AWESOME! I was second to get out the cave. The second cave was even MORE TIGHT! After lunch we went gorge walking. I was soaking wet. When we got back I was freezing.
Last night we had a music quiz. It was great fun. Me, Evie and Saorise were in a team. In the morning we went canoeing. Brigid and me were sharing a canoe. We were really good. We worked well as a team. In the afternoon we went caving. It was really muddy. We went through this crack called the letter box. It was very claustrophobic. It was really tight and then it opened up a bit. The letter box had loads of SPIDERS! AHHHHH!
Today was a packed day. In the morning we did canoeing. It was very fun. We went out to Loch Eck. No-one capsized or fell in. In the afternoon we went caving!! It was awesome. We went to the cave called the paper cave. The spiders were huge. Every day we have tea and cake. Today the cake was sponge. For tea we had roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. We have got one more activity later. PS Don’t embarrass me, please.
Today I went on the forest walk with a new instructor called Jill. We started off on a minibus and noticed that all the minibuses have different coloured writing on them. We went in a red one.
When we got to the car park we got to a really wee cave. After we explored we went in to the forest. We saw all the different plants and animals and we went through a massive bog . We got to a stream with a waterfall and we got our hair wet (a lot). We had a picnic with awesome hot chocolate. We finally got to the end of the trail but we got to go through a tiny tunnel with water through it. Me and Alan were the only ones to got through it. I got soaking.
Today we went caving and then gorge walking. We went caving first and I quite enjoyed it! I was worried that it would be scary, cold, wet and tight squeezed but it was fun! We went through a tunnel and then traipsed through muddy puddles. We went on a gorge walk which was very…COLD! We went through a waterfall and also climbed up them! I got a lot of water in my shoes. Me and Kara got very wet, but still had fun! We got back and washed our shoes and waterproofs and then went up to our dorms! I had a great time!
See you soon,

Today in the morning we went on a forest walk. In the middle of the forest walk there is a massive mud puddle called the sticky mud puddle of doom. I got so muddy in it. Robin got so STUCK. We had hot choc at the top!!!
Today in the afternoon we went climbing and abseiling. We abseiled off a 25 metre cliff. IT WAS SCARY!!!
There are 3 and a half angels on my bed.
Lots of love, Saorise x/x
(Tomorrow I am doing caving in the morning and ropes course in the afternoon) (Don’t forget to write on the blog)
Today I went canoeing and caving. The cave was FULL of girl (and soot) scaring spiders! The canoe was was F-F-F-F-FREEZING.
Missing Leo sooo much.

This morning I did canoeing with my group. Fortunately none of us fell in. I was in a canoe with Cara. We actually did pretty well! We canoed on the loch and went to the beachish thing on the other side. On the beachish thing we had hot juice. Yuck!
After lunch we went caving which was really scary. In the cave there were massive spiders.
When we got back we had tea which was roast dinner which surprisingly is my favourite. In all my spare time I mucked around with Morven, Ailsa, Jemma and Kara.
Today my group went caving and gorge walking. The caving was quite scary but it was really good. We went into two caves. The first one we had to get lowered down to the ground on harnesses. The second one we went up to a loft and went down a tunnel from the loft. After lunch we went gorge walking which was really good but it was quite cold. We went through the keyhole which is quite scary but fun. By accident I left my watch on but fortunately it didn’t get broken. We came back from gorge walking very wet and muddy. We got changed and then went downstairs to have tea and cake. The cake was very nice. After that we had free time and I spent most of it with Kara, Brigid, Ailsa, and Jemma. After free time it was dinner time which was Yorkshire pudding, roast beef, carrots and peas and salad and potatoes.
First thing we did was caving and we went down a cave that was quite far under the ground. We had so much fun walking about the cave and it was WET!! We went to 2 caves (the first one was better). Then we came back to have tea and cake (it was very nice). After the tea and cake we went to go gorge walking. We got very wet and my boots were full of water. We went up waterfalls and rocks. It was really good.
Today was fabulous. I did the caving and gorge walk.
The caving was great. These are my feelings I felt: scared, happy, stressed, excited, stuck, fantastic. OK, that’s a lot, I know.
DON’T get me started with the gorge walk. OK, I will. It is amazingly cold, fun, scary, adventurous.
There were lots of waterfalls and hard bits to climb.
I had a really good sleep last night, better than the first night. Today we had a nice breakfast. The food here is lovely! We went on the forest walk. It was okay. Our second activity was climbing and abseiling. It was really scary! But when I had done it, I felt proud! I thought I was going to fall but I didn’t. Tomorrow we are doing the high ropes course and caving! I am a little bit claustrophobic so might find it hard.
