Confidence with Navigation
This course is for anyone who is unsure of what navigation skills they should have as a minimum to enjoy moorland and hill terrain both on and off established footpaths. It is designed to improve participants' confidence in using a map to aid safe travel on open ground during normal daylight and sometimes in poor weather.
Developing your Navigation
This course is for walkers who have limited experience of navigating on open, moorland & hill terrain. With a mid-morning start, participants will revise their basic skills and then use these skills in failing light conditions as they leave the hill late towards the early evening.
