Get to grips with your map and compass, and have the skills to confidently navigate your way round the beautiful Border hills. Spend a day in the hills with a qualified Mountain Leader learning the basics of map reading and compass work. We will walk in a small group (max 8). During the day we will cover the following:
matching what we see on the ground to what is on the map
reading contour lines
taking and following a bearing
We provide all you need: map, map case, compass and a review sheet covering the important skills of the day. All you’ll need is your usual walking kit, food and water.
The cost of the course is £35 and is payable on the day.
