However, friendly rivalry was also encouraged between the 280 cadets through football and swimming activities.
During the expedition, the Moray company won the Champion Company Trophy for the third successive year while the Inverness cadets won the Best Drill Team.
Cadet Corporal Caitlin Green, 16, from Caithness won the Best Dressed Highlander and Cadet Colour Sergeant Louise Curtis, 16, from Moray was named Best Drill Commander.
