Inchcailloch 2019

Balfron Scouts embarked on an adventure to Inchcailloch island on Loch Lomond, via a 9km hike with full packs from Drymen up over Conic Hill.

Thankfully parents (Russell and Mark) helped with their boats for the crossing as the post boat was off due to high water.

The first night was calm and some scouts ventured up to the ancient burial ground on the island, they returned quite quickly, and a little shaken! Others were brave enough to paddle in the loch, they also returned shaking!

On the second night we had to endure a storm which flattened tents, once we added extra guy ropes we took shelter in the fantastic bivouac with fire and toasted marshmallows after a great dinner of Spag Bol and fried garlic bread.

Full cooked breakfast with full strength hot chocolate both mornings of course!

Well done all the scouts for doing a tough hike with heavy packs and enduring the storm in great spirits.
