Police Slate High-Tech Hillwalkers

"Following the rescue of a group of 14 lost hillwalkers from Ben Macdui last night, Grampian Police have issued a reminder that parties need to have the necessary skills and equipment. They are particularly keen that walkers learn to navigate properly, rather than just relying on high tech gadgets. " UKH News report

Navigation In The Mountains

Navigational Mobile Apps and GPS units are all very well, they are useful navigational tools, but you still need to take a proper map and a good compass into the hills with you and know how to use both.

If you need a book on navigation skills we recommend 'Navigation in the Mountains' the official navigation handbook of the Mountain Training award schemes.

If you need a map, look no further than the BMC's mountain maps.

If you need a compass, we have twenty Recta DT200 Compasses to give away.
