Have you ever wanted to unlock the secrets of navigating with a map and compass? Then this is just the weekend for you!
We have done courses with Marshall Cale Navigation Training before and the course is nothing short of superb. Marshall specialises in providing expert navigation training for hillwalkers and the course is not only a huge learning experience but great fun too! In just 2 days you will learn to navigate safely and independently using a map and compass.
The course runs from Saturday morning to Sunday late afternoon.
The Hostel serves meals and pack lunches or you may self-cater. Also there is good food and local Ale at the pub next door.

Remember that you should be aware of and accept these risks as you are responsible for your own safety and you should not undertake anything beyond your abilities. It is also your responsibility to be correctly equipped for the weather and activity you have chosen to participate in.
