Balfron Scouts go Navigating

Scouts go Navigating  

(Guest blog written by one of the scout troop)

On Thursday the 5th of April, Balfron scouts set out along the path from Blanefield that follows the route of the Loch Katrine pipeline. Along the way we navigated to various points and had to say what was at that point, some groups had more success than others! We recorded our route using a GPS tracker - shown in the picture above.

We had lots of fun and it was good navigation practice. We used a variety of methods such as map and grid references,  as well as using an app on our phones that told us where we were by latitude and longitude. 

Although some of the groups were late we all had lots of fun and we can't wait for our next walk.
