Gairloch pupils clean up at Crasg

Gairloch High School S1 pupils are pictured down at the beach at Crasg, near the golf course in Gairloch, trying to clean up after the recent storms.

The dunes were extensively damaged, but of more concern is the amount of plastic washed up amongst the seaweed. The pupils spent a couple of hours filling bags that were later collected by local Highland Council refuse workers.

Cleaning up Crasg beach  was part of an S1 activity course called SMART, part
of which contributes to pupils achieving the John Muir Discovery Award. This supports pupils taking responsibility and forming an understanding of their local environment. With the children are teachers Gill Dean and Andrew Johnston.
