Heather's Cairngorm Epic

A highlight of my winter so far has been working with Heather Morning, Mountaineering Scotland's Mountain Safety Advisor. A large proportion of mountain rescue callouts relate to navigational challenges, and never more so than in winter when darkness comes early. A few years ago Heather responded to this by offering winter navigation courses which start at noon and run until 9pm - informally known as the "Cairngorm Epic"! Check out this excellent article by top writer & photographer David Lintern who recently attended one of these courses - click here for link to David's article.
