Lowland Leader Award Assessment

For the past couple of days I have been out on a Lowland Leader Award assessment. The first day was spent in the Carron Valley and the second in the Pentland Hills. Congratulations to all the candidates for their efforts over the past two days.

The course was organised by the Outdoor Activitites department of Falkirk Community Trust. Check out their website for more course dates.

Lowland Leader Award Assessment

For the past two days I have been working on o a Lowland Leader Award Assessment. The course was being provided by East Lothian Outdoor Learning Service. It is a new award administered by the MLTUK and is a great addition to the Mountain Leader scheme.

Devilla Forest and Carron Valley

The last two days I’ve been working with John on a Lowland Leader Award Assessment for Falkirk Community Trust. Based from Falkirk we used the Devilla Forest area on Saturday and the Carron Valley area on Sunday.

Well done to all those being assessed for dealing with the weather conditions, particularly today when we had steady rain and strong winds for a large part of the day. Sizable snow patches were visible on the nearby Meikle Bin today, but there was very little snow remaining below 400m.
