Navigation for Hillwalkers – Private Booking

11/04/2021 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

The 1 day course teaches navigation skills for use on open moorlands and in the mountains away from footpaths.

The course will be tailored to the abilities of the group so all welcome. Booking is essential as there are limited places. 

During the day you will develop skills required to navigate to detailed features. We will look at accurate compass work, and an ability to use a multitude of navigational techniques to travel across country. You will learn which techniques are appropriate for specific terrain, for example; choosing an appropriate attack point, using pacing and timing, contour interpretation, navigational tactics and route finding. The skills learned are essential for navigating in poor visibility and for night navigation.
