Activity Overview

This short course is suitable for ramblers, hill walkers, mountaineers, in fact anyone who uses a map in the outdoors and possibly those who might teach or introduce others to navigation.

Navigation skills are essential for anyone wanting to enjoy the mountains in safety, the mountainous areas of the British Isles has changeable weather; short hours of daylight in winter and even popular well used paths demand a certain amount of navigation skills in these conditions.

This course will cover the basic skills of land navigation in a fun, practical and progressive manner, from setting a map and using a compass to pace counting and timing and finally to developing strategies for locating yourself when temporarily geographically embarrassed; or to you and me. Lost!
