Plan, Prepare, Hike Session with Mountain Leader Natalie

On Monday 17th of June we enjoyed the first of our series of three hiking planning sessions led by experienced mountain leader Natalie, as part of our summer mountain programme that has generously been funded by the Scottish Mountaineering Trust.

Our mountain leader covered the basics of hike planning, including:

  • Route Selection: How to choose appropriate trails based on experience level and the terrain.
  • Weather Considerations: Understanding weather forecasts and how to prepare for changing conditions.
  • Gear Essentials: A rundown of the must-have gear for a successful hike, from footwear to navigation tools.

We are looking forward to the following sessions, where will we introduce topics such as what to pack in your day bag, and food and nutrition. If you are interested in coming along please get in touch with or 07721543217.
