Stay safe this autumn!
Autumn is definitely starting to show its colours, just as we've all grown used to sunshine and blue skies! So now is a good time to check out what you're carrying in that rucksack, in preparation for the cooler days. Weather changes fast in the mountains so we recommend you always pack waterproof jacket and over-trousers, a spare insulating layer, hat and gloves.
For more hints and tips, check out our 'Call Out Mountain Rescue?' pocket handbook in the online shop. A snip at £9.99!
- Plan your route carefully and, if you're new to the hills, take care not to overstretch yourself – stay in your comfort zone.
- Check the weather forecast before setting off.
- Take sufficient food and drink to sustain you and keep you hydrated.
- And, of course, map, compass, torch (and spare batteries)!!
