Warm and dry nav in the Cairngorms

This weekend I'm been working for Glenmore Lodge on refreshers for Summer Mountain Leaders on behalf of the Mountain Training Association.
Today I had a group of 4 folk and we headed up the north ridge of Cairngorm looking at relating the map and contour features to the ground. We also visited the El Alamein Refuge and had a chat about the plants and geology of the Cairngorms.
