The Hill & Mountain Skills scheme is a great way to develop your personal skills and confidence in all elements of hill and mountain walking. From planning a coastal walk to navigating in complex terrain, these courses are an ideal opportunity to learn the basics and enjoy the countryside. THIS IS NOT THE HILL AND MOORLAND LEADER SCHEME.
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.
Mountains Skills Training is a mountain school run by full-time mountaineering instructors. We are passionate about the outdoors and want to help you gain the skills and confidence to enjoy the upland areas safely.
