3. ESM 2008 Activity Day Information
Wednesday 30th July 2008

1. Outdoor Activity

OPTION 1 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Full day tour visiting: Blair Atholl Castle and Edradour Distillery.

Blair Castle, the ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl. The castle enjoys one of Scotland’s finest settings in the heart of Highland Perthshire.
With its roots in the 13th century, Blair Castle’s history extends over some 740 years, during which time it has welcomed countless generations of visitors. At the gateway to the Grampian Mountains on the route north to Inverness, the location was highly strategic. Today we can enjoy the wild beauty of the surrounding landscape but centuries ago it was a threatening and dangerous place.

Edradour Distillery
Edradour whisky is produced in Scotland's smallest distillery - and is hand made today as it was over 150 years ago by just three men who are devoted to the time-honoured methods of whisky making. Indeed equipment used at the distillery has remained unchanged since the day the distillery opened and is only just capable of producing commercial quantities. Only 12 casks of whisky are produced a week, making Edradour single malt a rare pleasure for a fortunate few.

Then travel to Cairngorm Mountain – Evening Event including dinner in the Ptarmigan Restaurant.

OPTION 2 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Full day Ben Vracky hill climb for experienced hill walkers.
Ben Vrackie (841 metres) is a very popular hill overlooking Pitlochry with magnificent views. Ben Vrackie is an irregular hill, rough and craggy in places, although the ascent from Moulin is very straight-forward. Ben Vrackie has several ridges; a main ridge runs NE then N to Meall Breac (696m) and this has an E spur to Carn Geal (776m); a second main ridge runs NW to Meall an Daimh (722m) and this has a SW spur to Meall na Moine. All ridges are craggy in places.

Participants should be aware that only experienced walkers will be allowed on this tour with certain conditions attaching as follows;
Personal profile of each delegate to be provided – including any medical condition. Stated clothing requirements to be adhered to – checked on the day. The guides will have the right to refuse any delegate they feel is not fit or prepared for the climb

Then travel to Cairngorm Mountain – Evening Event including dinner in the Ptarmigan Restaurant.

OPTION 3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
House of Bruar
En route to Loch Morlich the coach will stop at House of Bruar to give delegate the chance to visit the Falls of Bruar, browse round the retail outlet or have a tea/coffee break.
Loch Morlich Water Sports
Situated at the foot of the Cairngorm, Loch Morlich is situated right at the heart of the National Park. This beautiful location provides an ideal site for you to enjoy a wide range of activities including,

Wind Surfing
Mountain Biking

The centre has single kayaks and the larger Canadian style open canoes which take two or three persons. Loch Morlich and the burn, which runs into the loch, are ideal places to enjoy this sport.

The centre has a fleet of Laser Picos, Toppers and Optimists. The different boats in our fleet offer a range of performance to suit all ages and abilities.

Stable boards and a full range of specially reduced adult and junior sails. This ensures that the maximum time is spent on the board and not in the water. An introduction on the sandy beach quickly leads to being afloat.
Loch Morlich Watersports also offers the following 'Dry Option' for Groups


There are changing facilities at the water sports centre. Fully qualified instructors are on hand at all times.
Then travel to Cairngorm Mountain – Evening Event including dinner in the Ptarmigan Restaurant.

2. Evening event in the Cairngorm Mountain

Evening Event will include dinner in the Ptarmigan Restaurant and a presentation by Dr Catherine Morduant entitled "CairnGorms: landscape and Ecology". Eight miles south east of Aviemore and high on the northern flank of Cairn Gorm lies the CairnGorm Mountain Railway.

This funicular railway runs for two kilometers through the Cairngorm ski area. In doing so it climbs 460m to the Ptarmigan top station, 150m below the summit of the mountain. The Cairngorm plateau, mostly above 4,000ft in height, is one of the most rare and fragile environments in Scotland.

However, Cairn Gorm's northern corries of Coire Cas and Coire na Ciste have been the location for extensive ski-related development since the opening of the White Lady chairlift here on 23 December 1961
