A group of third year geography students from Taylor High recently enjoyed an educational visit to the Kilbowie Outdoor Centre.

Pictured are Roisin Brennan, Andrew Smith, David McLellan, Melissa Rankin, Caitlin McAleer, David Ruthven, Stephen Newns, Callum Walker and Josh Clifford.

During their visit the students carried out fieldwork relating to the new Geography National Courses.

This included a tourism study in Oban, and a river study that included gathering data on river speed. Pupils also had the opportunity to participate in activities such as canoeing, kayaking and sailing.
