Sea to Summit Family Fun Day in Lochaber


The Sea to Summit Project is an arts project involving Lochaber schools and highlights the connections between the mountains and the seashores which characterise Lochaber. The project is supported by the Highland Seashore Biodiversity Project, Nevis Landsape Partnership and the Highland Council Countryside rangers. 

The main focus of the project was the creation of a 3D map by pupils from Caol, Banavie and Inverlochy primary schools – in Glen Nevis, and Acharacle by the seaside. It was completed at the Glenuig Seashore festival, part of the Wild Lochaber Festival. 

The finished map is now on display in the West Highland Museum and is certainly worth a look.
