MSF Edinburgh & Ben Nevis Girl Explorers

Alhamdulillah, our Explorers were lucky enough to join the the MSF team for another adventure. We had an action packed weekend travelling to Scotland. We warmed up for the big hike with a lovely tour of Edinburgh, conducted by a Scottish Scout leader. The morning of the hike was a tough one, having slept very late and being woken up far too early. The 3 hour coach journey from Edinburgh to Glen Nevis was one of many snores, interrupted only by the stunning mountainous views. The hike began with high spirits, excitement and nerves as all 108 scout members gathered at the bottom on a surprisingly sunny and warm day, not the -11 degree showery day that we had prepared for! The hike was a tough one but with resilience and great camaraderie the girls all managed, and as they say “the best views come after the hardest climbs”. The trip was a memorable one, one they hope never to forget.
