Map Reading
Hi all. I've only recently discovered the joys of hill walking. So far I've braved a few hills around the west Wicklow area such as Black hill, Mullaghcleevaun, Sorrell hill, Powerscourt etc. I did the Wicklow way in my teens (nearly 20 years ago) and I'm hoping to do it again this summer. My only concern is my map reading skills which are very basic. Usually when I'm walking I love to go off the beaten track and so far I've managed to find my way back but getting lost is inevitable. I'm just wondering is there any good map reading books anyone could recommend or how should I go about brushing up my skills? Thanks.
