Swiss Sunshine

Legs tired following miles of terrific skiing - thus, lunchtime today spent dozing on deckchairs - surrounded by snow - bathed beautifully by the warm Swiss sunshine.

Hopefully to be beautifully bathed by Scottish sunshine next week whilst back in my canoes on the wonderful River Spey, this time with group of adventurous whisky writers. Will be great whatever the weather!

Mont Fort in the Alps - See the view.

Yesterday was another stunning day in the Alps.  The highest point on the Verbier ski area - Mont Fort 3300 metres - from where we were able to view, very clearly Mont Blanc & the Matterhorn.  Clarity was amazing.

You Can Save Lives.

Just finished the delivery of 2-day First Aid at Work Revalidation course for a group of Highlife Highland staff who work mainly in leisure centres in Badenoch & Strathspey. Very enthusiastic & knowledgeable group of ladies, some of whom teach first aid within their centre & to pupils in local schools.

In an ideal world all children would be trained in this life-skill. Whether it's stemming bleeding, opening an airway or delivering CPR, everyone has at their fingertips the ability to save a life.

If you would like to book onto one of these courses, please make contact by emailing me
