Brian was out with me on a one day navigation course. We headed onto the Cairngorm plateau and it was ideal navigation conditions, ie cloudy. Brian as just started out on his Munros and wanted some extra navigation skills to gain more confidence in getting around the mountains safely. We covered loads of ground on the plataeu and Brian left with lots of vital skills including micro navigation. The drizzle and cloud lifted by mid afternoon and some sunshine.
