Naturally being outdoors in Scotland in wet weather makes little difference, given good waterproof clothes and planning, but now and again a wet weather day inside allows us all to recoup (and allow Dad to pack up the car tomorrow without a heap of festering wet gear!).
And where better to spend an energetic indoor day than at the IceFactor, in Kinlochleven, only 40 minutes away by car. This facility has a huge array of climbing walls to suit all ages, and also an indoor icewall! Bit like walking into the biggest freezer you can imagine! We managed to spend the whole day here, in a very relaxed atmosphere, enjoying the bouldering room, ascents and belaying, great freshly cooked food and coffees, and shop. Facilities were lacking nothing, and being right in the heart of Kinlochleven, there are other shops and activities nearby.
Next time the Via Ferata and perhaps the river rapids adventure…..
