Navigation – The Basics
During this course you will learn the basic skills required to navigate confidently in the Summer mountains. Skills covered will include:
Setting the Map
Reading Map Features
Taking a Bearing
Following a Bearing
Timing & Pacing Techniques
This can be covered in 1 day, or if you require more time it can cover 2 days depending on your needs. Most of the time will be spent at low level in order to focus on the techniques in a safe environment.
Navigation – Advanced
This course is a continuation of what is covered above, with some new skills introduced to make you a competent and confident navigator in any Summer condition. Additional skills include:
Planning a Journey
Night/Poor Visibility Navigation
If you already know the basics and want to scratch up on your skills, or refresh what you already know, this can be taken as a one day course to suit your needs.
The Mountain Landscape
This course is designed to help you understand the mountain landscape which we walk through and admire. It is an educational journey with the focus being on learning rather than making a summit, although this will be a secondary objective. Topics covered may include:
Flora & Fauna
Lochs and Rivers
This course can be run as a 1 or 2 day course and can take place in a range of areas, although Ben Nevis and Glen Coe are of particular interest.
