Isle of Tiree Trip (July 2016)

Update: We had a fantastic trip - to see the pictures and diary entries click here.

Northern House has been taking groups of pupils for several years now for residential experiences in South Wales, but this will be the first time that we have headed for Scotland.

The Tiree trip will involve an  8-hour mini bus ride to the town of Oban, on Scotland's west coast. The party will be leaving from the school at 9:15pm on Sunday 3rd July (pupils need to arrive at the school between 8:30-8:45pm) so we can take the early ferry out to Tiree on the Monday morning. This in itself is a four-hour sea journey.

Once on the island, we will stay together and have exclusive use of Alan Stevenson House where we will lodge for the entire week. The island itself which is often described as the 'Hawaii of Scotland' offers extensive sandy beaches and an array of outward bound activities. Please see the ‘Itinerary’ for a full list of activities we will be partaking in.

Pupils will travel back early on Friday 8th July and are expected to get back to the Solihull region at approximately 9pm, we will be dropping pupils off at their homes.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Hebridean Trust for offering this fantastic experience to our pupils.
