Handy timing – distance ready reckoner table card including measurement aid for 1:25k & 1:50k maps
Naismith's Rule is a formula to assist plotting how long a particular section of mountain route should take. Devised in 1892 by the Victorian mountaineer William Naismith, this commonly known rule of thumb remains in frequent use today by mountain walkers and navigators. Every walk is different, and so is every walker. By using our handy pacing/timing reckoner table you can, with experience, be able to work out your own rough averages of timings on various types/gradients of terrain.
Our handy reckoner card is made from tough weather resistant durable plastic and is designed to be attached to a compass string or ruc-sac strap.
The card is free, but there is a limit of 2 per purchase. Post and packaging of €1.50 applies for Ireland and €2.00 for all other regions.
