The interactive visitor exhibition really brings history to life, before walking out onto the battlefield to stand where the troops met face to face on the front line. After this step back in time, journey to the Cairngorms National Park and your accommodation for the next few nights, in the heart of the Glenfeshie estate. Have a relaxing evening and settle in, or perhaps take a stroll on the estate grounds.

Day 3 - Thursday 19th September - Wood Carving and Gorge Walking

The forests of the Cairngorms are home to many adventures and awesome activities and today you will try your hand at two. Your first stop is a clearing in the local forest near your accommodation where you will be met by a local wood carver and will spend the morning learning how to carve your very own souvenir. Listen to the calls of the local wildlife as you use tools to whittle away, enjoying this private tuition from your expert tutor. This afternoon, it is time to take to the water to explore a secluded gorge. Gorge walking is a mix of rock scrambling and white water fun with plunge pools and natural slides. You will meet your local expert to spend time working your way up the river, jumping off ledges, swimming down streams and having lots of fun in the water.

After warming up over a delicious lunch, enjoy an afternoon hike into the local hills. With your guide, choose a hike that suits you – perhaps hike to a summit, or choose to explore a low level route, along the rivers or through the pine forests or roam heather-covered glens, the perfect immersion into this ancient landscape.
