Bookmark and Share
The National Trust for Scotland is using the tenth highest mountain in the country, Ben Lawers, as a base for a navigation skills course run by its staff.

For six hours tomorrow (August 11th), rangers from the trust will put people through the basics of navigating, including using maps and compasses, putting these to use on the Munro, which is 3,984 ft high.

Participants have been advised to bring walking boots, waterproof clothing, food and a map.

Those keen to get good Ordnance Survey Maps to help navigate their way around the Ben Lawers area or elsewhere in the countryside may pick these up at the nearest Go Outdoors store.

A walking GPS is another item people may wish to consider equipping themselves with while out on the hills.

Ben Lawers is one of series of Munros overlooking Loch Tay, with others including Meall Greigh, Meall Garbh, An Stuc, Beinn Ghlas, Meall a' Choire Leith and Meall nan Tarmachan.
