Blairgowrie & District Hillwalking Club

Guidance for Visitors and New Members:

Food & rations

  • Beforehand: Have a good breakfast - also MCofS recommends high carbohydrate, meal the evening before.
  • Carry enough food and drink for at least 3 stops. The exact type of food and drink may vary depending on season and length of walk.
  • Always carry some emergency rations such as: Chocolate, Mint Cake, dried fruit. Do not use them as an extra snack - keep in your rucksack.

Even if you don't think you'll want much food, take enough to last - it is better to have a bit more than too little. Similarly always carry enough fluid for the whole day - do not rely on refilling bottles on the hill.

See the MC of S guidelines on food and drink.
