Navigation session in the Pentlands, March'13

The snow has gone and the sun is out - perfect conditions for a day's navigation practice in the Pentlands !

Maps, compass, pacing and much more were discussed in our 'classroom', then we headed out into the hills to put it all together. While we were out practicing, it was wonderful to see other people enjoying the hills - walkers, skiers and pony-trekers. Our audience also included a herd of curious young cattle.

Great fun had by all and lots learnt to boot !

More photos on Flickr soon.

Next session is on 24 March, details are here .
