Planning my trip

Close to home, there are many activitiesyou can enjoywithout the need for much planning or preparation - the important thing is to get out there!

However, ifyou plan to explore further afield you need to prepare bywearing appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather, the conditions underfoot and the activity itself. For longer trips, take adequate food and drink and know how to use a map and compass if necessary. Enjoy the wildlife and landscapes, but act sensibly around livestock and take suitable precautions againstmidges andticks. external site
