About

This nationally recognised walking qualification scheme has been designed for people who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside and woodland in summer conditions. The majority of the UK and Ireland is made up of this type of terrain so you'll never be short of places to go walking.

The leadership opportunities for Lowland Leaders are varied and far reaching, from the South West Coast Path to the Great Glen Way; walking in lowland areas can be no less spectacular than walking high up in the mountains. And with campaigns such as Britain on Foot and Walking for Health proving really popular, there’s never been a better time to be a walking leader.

Lowland Leaders should be competent in the following key areas, all of which will be covered during your two day training course.

  • Leadership Skills and Group Management
  • Walking Skills
  • Planning a Walk
  • Basic Mapwork and Route Finding Skills
  • Equipment
  • Hazards and Emergency Procedures
  • Environmental Awareness, Conservation, Access and Land Ownership

Before you book onto a Lowland Leader training course, make sure you have done the following:

  • You must be at least 17 years old
  • You must be registered on the scheme (this is £49 and payable directly to Mountain Training and is seperate to our RAW course fees)
  • You must have recorded a minimum of 10 varied walks in Lowland terrain where the use of a map is required (which must be recorded on DLOG) which can have taken place at any point (pre- or post-registration)

Course Duration: 2 days
