Spring Term 2018

Exchange Students' Visit to Loch Ness

A chilly boat ride heading down Loch Ness

On a chilly winter's morning our 19 exchange students from as far afield as Canada, USA, Peru, Denmark, Germany, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, embarked on a trip to seek out the Loch Ness monster. With the weather undecided if it were winter or spring, the skies gave us sunshine, rain and snow with the obligatory southwest wind. The students, some of whom had never seen snow before, were well and truly wrapped up. The cruise across the Loch to Urquhart Castle was entertaining and enjoyable, but many opted for a view from inside the cabin with a hot chocolate to comfort them from the elements.

Upon arrival on the castle grounds, the group divided into smaller groups and set about exploring the ruins. This is when the cameras and phones came out in full force with many photographs being taken and social media profiles being updated. Let us hope that a couple of these pictures have been sent back home! Once their investigation into ancient times was satisfied, or they were too cold, we gathered in the coffee shop for a warm up.
