Last week I was working at Glenmore Lodge on their annual Mountain Craft course for Visually Impaired people. It was a great week with an amazing team. During the week we went to Cummingston climbing, spent a night out camping, used the indoor climbing wall at Glenmore Lodge and went up Ben Rinnes.
It was truly inspiring to watch the VI's just getting on with everything and not letting their impairment stop them enjoying the great outdoors.
