Skye’s the limit for Lasswade pupils

Pupils from Lasswade are Skye high following a trip to the highlands.

The 21 teenagers spent five days learning about highland culture at the Gaelic college on Skye, Sabhal Mor Ostaig.

Studying Gaelic language and taking part in musical workshops in the mornings, the group spent afternoons exploring all that the isle has to offer.

Highlights included a trip to a working croft, seal spotting at nearby Plockton, and a foot-stomping ceilidh to round off their stay.

The ventures, which began back in 2008, are the brainchild of modern languages teacher James Forbes, who co-ordinated the latest trip.
