Well developed mountain skills are key to enjoying our challenging mountain environment in a safe, responsible and enjoyable manner.
We offer more than just your average navigation course. Having the skills and ability to deal with inclement weather, poor visibility, the need to relocate, navigate in the dark, move safely on steep ground and deal with an emergency high on the hill are skills that we believe every walker and climber should have. On our courses we look at all of these skills and more.
Our 2-day course covers the basic topics that are included in our 1-day course but in more detail. It also introduces more advanced skills which will leave you with a well developed toolkit of skills to navigate safely in all kinds of conditions.
An idea of the sort of content that we would look to cover on a two day navigation course is below.
We also provide a 1-day navigation course, which covers some of these topics, but not in as much depth.
This is a 2-day course that is run in the Fort William & Glencoe area. We run private bespoke tailored courses for just you or your group which means that you can learn at a speed that suits you, focusing more on the areas that you need to develop and spending less time on the areas where you are already proficient.
Price: This is the total amount shared by the whole private party.
We offer further discounts for larger groups too. Just contact us with your requirements.
We can run our private bespoke courses for individuals or for groups, at a time that suits you.
