NNAS wanderings

Craig has been out doing work in the past few days teaching navigation skills as part of the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS).  This is a great way to learn the skills needed to keep you safe in the hills.

He was out with a group of young people who completed their course on Thursday around Aberfoyle area, then on Friday Craig and Kathleen headed for the hills above Loch Lomond towards Helensburgh for a tour of Craperoch, a great wee hill for getting to grips with bearings, features, timing, pacing and interpreting ground to map and vice versa.


It was a beautiful crisp day and Kathleen brushed up on her skills with a view to getting her bronze award in early course.   We even included a winter element (not really part of the award!) in the light snow higher up.
