Pentlands and Ratho Quarry

Last week was an Edinburgh based for myself with a good variety of activities. Monday evening/night I was working with Davy delivering a navigation course for a group of Scout Leaders in the Pentland Hills, this was a very enjoyable and productive session. Thanks to Nikki for the photos.

Tuesday Euan, Ivor and I had a morning climbing in Ratho Quarry before the showers arrived. Wednesday and Thursday I was working for The City of Edinburgh Council supervising a DofE Bronze qualifying expedition in The Pentlands. It was a week of sunshine and showers with cool winds, which with the warmer weather over the weekend will have helped to dry out a lot of the local crags.
