Lowland Leader Award Training day 1

Today was the first day of a Mountain Training Scotland Lowland Leader Award training I'm Directing for East Dunbartonshire Council. We were at Mugdock Country Park where I introduced the scope of the Award and did some short presentations on kit, weather and legal responsibilities for the group before we headed outside. We compared using orienteering maps with 1:50000 OS maps and looked at navigating using both. We ended the day with some planning of routes for tomorrow and then a little nav in the dark.
