With school term time nearly complete for the summer holidays a few local schools here in Fort William, Lochaber have been enjoying a special children’s activity. Banavie Primary School is one school which recently spent a few hours on a family friendly outing aboard Crannog’s cruise boat, Souters Lass.
The primary school children enjoyed their journey down Loch Linnhe, departing from the Town Pier in Fort William. They were able to admire views of Ben Nevis, spot wildlife and hear more from our knowledgeable skipper about the animals and birds which live and thrive in the locality of Loch Linnhe.
In the below deck viewing lounge, the children used activity sheets to help them spot the local wildlife, and they had fun colouring the sheets in.
