Fiona, Joe and I were out today in the Pentland Hills with an excellent group from Grangemouth High School.
It was cool to start with after an overnight frost, but was warm in the sun later on with light variable winds. The Pentlands are dry underfoot at the moment after the recent weather.
Yesterday Glenn & I were out in the Pentlands with a group from the Quickdraw Club looking at navigation and orienteering. We made use of the orienteering course at Hillend before taking in Caerketton and Allermuir Hills.
The weather remained fine all day with light Westerly winds and great views. The group were excellent and put in to practice the skills learnt in a classroom session with Glenn on Friday.
Euan, Craig and I were out in the Pentlands today with an excellent group of young people from Falkirk and their leaders. We were looking at the navigation the group will need for their Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition.
The weather us kind to us and we avoided the heavy showers that were around whilst we were out on the hill. The ground was pretty dry underfoot, given the recent downpours, with just the odd muddy section on paths and tracks.
