Japanese Visit to Scotland - July 2009
 
 
 
 
 
 

Madras College S5 pupils hosted four pupils from Ohtawara, Japan for 10 days in July. Mr Tarvet (the chauffeur) and Mr Latona (head chef) took the group away on a 3-day tour to see some of the sights and sounds of the Scottish Highlands. The weather stayed fair and a great time was had by all. Here is an outline of the trip in pictures - click to see bigger photos.
