Pupils from Whiting Bay Primary School had a great day this week planting trees in Glen Rosa as part of their John Muir Award.

Assisting the Arran Ranger Service, the youngsters planted birch and an Arran Whitebeam to help with the habitat revival project in the glen.

Not only that, they learned about some of the special flora and fauna of Glen Rosa too and were lucky enough to see an adder and golden eagle and sunshine.

The senior pupils from Whiting Bay were the first school group to be welcomed back by the rangers when they came to learn about the Bronze Age and undertook survival skills earlier in the month, also as part of their John Muir Award.
