First Aid at Glenmore Lodge

Northern Corries and Loch Morlich
As part of being an Mountain Leader it is a requirement to undertake a Two day First Aid course every 3 years. It is amazing how the 3 years goes so fast! I have always gained my certificate with the fantastic BASP ( British Association of Ski Patrollers). A huge chunk of the two days is practical 'hands on' scenarios, enacted outdoors. All of the First Aid providers for BASP are active in mountain activities and many are in Mountain Rescue Teams. I would thoroughly recommend a BASP course. Big thanks to Chris who is a brilliant instructor. We are based at Glemore Lodge for the two days. For  me it is just down the road from Aviemore. It was a glorious day with sunshine through the afternoon. I enjoyed a nice bile ride to and from the course and the sunset on the way home was stunning.
