Walking in 2010

I'm going to be doing lots of walking in Scotland in 2010. I have thought about 44 Munro summit camps, being my age next birthday, but that'll be pretty tricky to find that many summits, or near summits, that are suitable. Not forgetting the fickle weather up there of course.  read more ...   (06/12/09)


Navigation course, the conclusions

The course taught me navigation. It was worth the money. And it was a nice place, but I'm not sure I enjoyed it as such.  read more ...   (07/10/08)

Navigation Course, Thurs 25th Sept 08

It started with a bit of a lark. Nathan dropped us off not at the car park we expected, but 5 km further back. And refused to say if we were in the right place.

Navigation Course, Tue 23rd Sept 08

After some faffing we got a minibus to the Coire Cas car park. And headed into Coire an t'Sneachta, past the two lochans and up the head wall onto the Cairngorm plateau. We then picked up the path to Lochan Buidhe. We were now into pacing and timing everything. This was no exception.  read more ...   (07/10/08)


Navigation Course, Mon 22nd Sept 08

I'd arrived the evening before, just like it says to in the bumph. And it's true they have a bed reserved for you. I expected to have to share a room with someone else, but as it happens I had the room to myself for the week. And it was pretty good. I expected a Youth Hostel kind of thing, but this was much more hotel like.  read more ...   (06/10/08)


Glenmore Lodge Navigation Course

A while ago I decided it was time I went on a navigation course. Now, I could navigate sort of. It was just a case of looking at a map deciding where you are, and where you want to be next and walk there. Easy peasy. Right!...  read more ...   (06/10/08)
