Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

The Bronze Duke of Edinburgh group set off on their two day practice expedition to Auchengillan, near Strathblane on September 20th and 21st.

Participants have been learning map reading and compass skills to help them with the expedition, which is one of four elements of the award.

The task itself is to navigate to the campsite carrying all food and equipment, set up camp, cook dinner and stay overnight.

So far, the group is showing all the signs of succeeding in the assessed expedition which will take place later in the year- probably just in time for the snow to start falling!
