Bagging -on- a Munro!

A crucial stage in our project at Ben Narnain will be to fly 250 tonnes of materials to site. But before we fly, we have to 'bag' the block stone from neighbouring boulder fields, and it is no mean feat. All the bags have to be filled by hand and this involves moving the stones several times to get them in the helibag. The stone range in weight from 25kg to 250kg so it is ridiculously hard work and our team were feeling the pace afterwards. ( There was also a walkin of over an hour before we even got to work!)
