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.
The Hill Skills course is an ideal introduction to exploring the hills and moorland of the UK. Based in the North East of England, we will spend a day on Simonside, and a day on Blanchland Moor. Areas of syllabus covered will include: planning a day walk; kit and equipment; weather forecasting; route planning; navigation; Emergency Actiion Plan etc. It will be a practical course with c. 6 hours per day walking in the hills. I look forward rto meeting you and walking with you.
