Map reading is one of the most valuable skills a walker can learn.

Walk Fife volunteer Gary Wilson will be running a free workshop on Saturday 28th October in Dunfermline.

Gary is well versed in many different forms of navigation thanks to his past career serving as a mountain leader in the British Armed Forces.

This workshop is classroom based and will introduce attendees to the basics of map reading and is ideal for those who are new to using maps when walking in the countryside. Gary will also be available after the workshop to answer any map reading questions that you may have.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • What is a map?
  • Map symbols and their meaning
  • Map scales – picking the right scale for your needs
  • How to read and give a 6 figure grid reference
  • Map care – how to correctly fold and store a map

    I tried to book a place on this and found it was booked up. Will you be running any more workshops?

      Hi Bill. Yes the 12 places on the workshop booked up very quickly indeed. Because of the response we have had, we are looking to see if Gary will be available to run a few more workshops for us. Thanks
