Three long distance hikers from the Waterford Scout County are just back from a winter completion of the West Highland Way in Scotland
The De La Salle Scout Group Leadership team were represented by Eoin Kelly (3rd Cubs) and Colm Ennis (3rd Scouts) on a Scottish winter expedition recently. Despite heavy rain and snow, occasional storm force winds and overall properly tough Scottish midwinter conditions, the lads put in an impressive mountaineering performance.
This year the 7th De La Salle Scout Troop will be going to Scotland on their annual camp which will take place from Sunday 27th of July to Monday 4th of August. The programme will run as follows: Sunday 27th: Travel by bus to Fort William via Belfast – Stranraer
Eighteen leaders from the De La Salle Scout Group, some high Scottish mountains and a load of haggis. The 1999 Leaders weekend was the stuff of legends after which Roddy was made to promise that he would never wear Lycra again.
