About

Course Overview

Start exploring the wild uplands and moorlands of Britian.  Join us on a Hill Skills course and gain the skills and confidence to safely enjoy big days out in the hills.  

Most of your time will be spent out in the hills with our experienced mountaineering instructors.  We’ll start with the very basics of navigation and and gradually introduce new topics.  We won’t cover lots of distance, instead we’ll focus on developing your hill skills.

No previous experience is required but you should have a reasonable level of fitness.
