Ullapool Primary P7s were lucky with the weather today! They were hosting their John Muir Award Share day on Isle Martin for the P7s from Achiltibuie, Lochinver & Scoraig. In the morning artist Julia Barton led a CSI style investigation into several “crime scenes” found on the beach. All pupils were involved in collecting the evidence to try and determine the perpetrators of the crimes….evidence included plastic bottles, twine, sweet wrappers, plastic strapping, drink cans……can you think “who dunnit”? After lunch there were den building sessions and a Victorian treasure hunt which helped everyone get to know the island a bit better.

Thank you to the Isle Martin Trust and Wester Ross Salmon for transporting everyone over.
