Liz & Terry are with me  this weekend on a two day navigation course. Today we were on the southern slopes of Aonach Beag and worked our way through lovely, remote terrain back via the Meall Cumhann area. This is ideal ground for learning all techniques for map reading and compass work, especially when all the summits are free of cloud. Why is it when running navigation courses I always seem to get clear conditions! As well as the navigation there was time to appreciate the grand views, remotness, peace and quiet and the flora & fauna. Today we spotted, amongst many other things, Alpine Bistort, Cransbills, Fragrant Orchid, tiny baby frogs and a beautiful, fragile 'baby' dragonfly not quite able to take off yet!
