Tired/sleepy/headache + doms but not unpleasant so don't mind. https://www.scottish6days.routegadget.co.uk/rg2/#5...
1 - good
2 - bad exit direction then got confused by vegetation. Big banana
3 - Had planned route on way to 1, but don't think I looked at my map for a while after leaving 2 to make a detailed plan. Planned to take the high route and follow the hill along to the path then come in below the big crag. Started going up the hill as planned, but I think I tried to avoid climb and contoured without thinking. I then didn't look at my map or compass for far too long and ran along the flat. When I got to the edge, I thought I was further up near one of the higher re-entrants. I then decided to try to cross and hit the path. After very slowly making my way down the hill I saw some flat ground and decided it would be better to go there. I wasn't entirely sure what I'd done and still thought I was further up the hill. Didn't take long to realise but I lost a lot of time getting down the hill. Simple solution: think, read the map, check compass and embrace hills. Luckily didn't take much more energy, maybe saved some because the descent was so slow, so no harm done from that perspective.
4 - good
5 -good, although not sure I took a bearing
6 - good
8 - small wobble, distance judgement/picture?
9 - good
10 - good
12 - didn't check compass after climbing hill
13 - good (although maybe helped by others)
Overall actual orienteering was better than I thought, but also lost more time than I realised. After 3 I seemed to remember to check map and compass enough and maybe allowed myself more time to slow down. I think mistakes on 2 and 3 were more about not doing things I should do, rather than lack of technique/bad routechoice.
